First announced back in August, the late Rammellzee is currently the subject of an exhibition at London’s Lazinc gallery, dubbed “RAMMΣLLZΣΣ: A Roll of Dice.” Inside, viewers are treated to a first-hand glimpse at some key pieces from the inscrutable artist’s estate.

Known for creating a wide variety of graffiti, performance art, sculptures and music, Rammellzee’s stylistic touchstones range from Afrofuturism to the self-coined school of Ikonoklast Panzerism, a refusal to pander to the conventional restraints of the alphabet. What’s on display in the exhibition is a variety of collaged artwork, seemingly straining to break free of the frames. Recalling DuChamp’s readymades, Rammellzee’s creations often fused together junk found on the street, here yielding a wristwatch encrusted in fake jewels and newspapers in place of traditional canvases.

Take a look at the exhibition above and below.

Elsewhere, we once again sat down with Takashi Murakami as he arrived in Hong Kong.
