Flying Förtress wass born in Munich, since 2007 he lives and works in Hamburg. Since more than 25 years Flying Förtress is producing graffiti and street art and therefore belongs to Germany's graffiti-old-hands.
He became worldwide known because of his 'Teddy Troopers'. He evolved this character with the intent to develop a visual language away from writings and tags that reaches a greater public. He didn't want to communicate only within the graffiti-scene, but rather invent a generally understood icon instead of the coded signet of a grafftit-tag, to make the communication within the public sphere of the urban space more direct and more unencrypted.
