If you are around London, make a little visit to his exhibition at the ICA, so you can read a little of his poetry, see some of his paintings, posters and little publications, listen some of his music. I discovered him by accident, and bought one of is poetry book (hand stamped cover
with no author, no ISBN and no barcode), which I red in one sit. 

All images are taken from his website, don't forget to give a read to his manifesto. Luckily  spotify is got a really long list of his music, I did a little selection of the ones I so far liked the most, click here to listen.
