Artist Flying Förtress
Flying Förtress works as an illustrator and designer and is the inventor of the legendary Teddy Trooper. The Munich-born artist lives now in Hamburg and he already had his first touches with graffiti and the associated scene at the end of the 80s. Despite his roots in graffiti, his style is influenced by design elements, comics and very figurative. His trademark are The Teddy Troops – small compact teddy bear soldiers, equipped with uniform helmets, various gadgets and in diverse appearances. Again and again to recognize, but never boring this army conquers the (street art) world. In addition to all other professions, Flying Förtress is part of the graffiti collective Jukebox Cowboys (JBCB) along with internationally renowned graffiti artists such as Nychos, Heis, Most and Myntone.
The Teddy Trooper not only appears on the walls of many cities around the world, but also as figures, patches, as textil designs, and, of course, as screen printing in limited editions of silk screen prints.
