LLADY KILLER: Rammellzee

Graffiti writer, performance artist, musician and sculptor, Ramellzee passed away yesterday.

Accredited to major influence of artists such as The Beastie Boys, Ramellzee was an out of this world artist who worked with Basquiat and gained much notoriety from Charlie Ahearn's film Wild Style. His self-made costumes rival those of Grace Jones and Lady Gaga. His spirit of artistic expression will be missed.
