Year: 1994

As a New York based brand, Supreme has done a better job than most recognizing artists from their hometown. Rammellzee, or RAMM:ΣLL:ZΣΣ, was just one of the most notable—and prolific. He painted with Dondi, released some of the earliest hip-hop, and twisted language and letters into an art form via his work ICONIC TREATISE GOTHIC FUTURISM. His costumes may have led to the likes of GWAR (and stand as his most well-known contribution), but he was so much more than a man in a mask.
