RAMMELLZEE

1960 – 2010

During his lifetime, and until his untimely death at age 49, Rammellzee was an underappreciated genius. Nevertheless, he made an impact on his contemporaries due to his exceptionally creative approach and his personal, overarching theory of art. As well as being a friend of Jean-Michel Basquiat, in whose works he appears several times, he was one of the first to take the art of graffiti beyond simple lettering in the New York Subway towards a more abstract and creative direction. As his work developed, he expanded upon his own theories of art to develop a doctrine of breaking free from the shackles of language, thereby transforming letters into weapons of war.
