    About The Work

    These limited edition sunglasses were created in collaboration with Freeway Eyewear and artist Raymond Pettibon, whose work is universally known for its blending of high and low culture, taking points of departure from the Southern California punk-rock culture of the late 1970s and 1980s and the “do-it-yourself” aesthetic of album covers, comics, concert flyers, and fanzines. His iconic text “I thought California would be different,” which first appeared in his 1989 serigraph by the same name, appears across the arm of the L.A. RAYS style sunglasses. Putting Pettibon’s longing text on the arm of sunglasses–L.A.’s ubiquitous accessory–highlights the darker side of the California Dream. The Raymond Pettibon L.A. RAYS are the third in our artist-designed series, following Barbara Kruger and John Baldessari.
