Rammellzee (born late 1960, died 2010) was a visual artist, graffiti writer, performance artist, hip hop musician, art theoretician, and sculptor from New York City. Rammellzee's graffiti and art work are based on his theory of Gothic Futurism, which describes the battle between letters and their symbolic warfare against any standardizations enforced by the rules of the alphabeth. His treatise, Ionic treatise Gothic Futurism assassin knowledges of the remanipulated square point's one to 720° to 1440°, details an anarch a plan by which to revise the role and deployment of language in society. Rammellzee performed in self-designed masks and costumes of different characters, which represented the “mathematical equation”, that is Rammellzee. He can be described as the key figure of graffiti in the United States. Together with Jean-Michel Basquiat and Keith Haring as well as with artists who are more familiar with the names of their tags such as LEE, Zephyr, Lady Pink, or Futura 2000, Rammellzee was among those of the graffiti scene, who have made a jump from their illegal spraying activities to public recognition in gallery exhibitions. His artistic work has been shown in art galleries throughout the US and Europe.
