Momentum: Denzel Himself
Denzel Himself is an interdisciplinary artist from outer-London. His gothic, hardcore, take on hip hop makes him no archetypal rapper, and has elicited plaudits from i-D “the unconventional future star we’ve been waiting for”, Noisey “your new favourite rapper”, Hypebeast “an auteur in every sense of the word” and Wonderland. Described as “Dilla’s brain in Manson’s skull”, Denzel has carved his own distinct aesthetic and sound, a result of the synaesthesia he experiences, and an undiagnosed psychological disposition which both skews and intensifies the way he views life and art.
Denzel Himself said:
“The Momentum fund is helpful in that it allows me to paint a more illustrious picture of what lives in my mind.”
