Born in Muncih.
Lives and works in Hamburg, Germany.
Born in Munich, Hamburg based artist Flying Förtress started to do classic graffiti in the early 90’s.
After a couple of years he felt himself stuck in a one-way alley so he quit writing and focused on his graphic studies.
Back with new ideas and influences he arose again at the beginning of the millennium and hit the streets back with his infamous Teddy Troops
First they appeared on posters, stickers and as pieces on the walls but later also turned into the third dimension as an urban vinyl toy,
released by AdFunture in 2004 [the Troops are still getting sent out to occupy the public and private space].
In 2008 Publikat published the book „Part Of Rebellion # 1 - Flying Förtress„ as sequel to the bestseller „Art of Rebellion„.
This edition was the first of a group of books, which study leading international street artists in detail.
Flying Fortress is currently reclaiming the streets in Lüneburg, working at the ARTotale
as one of the foremost artists in his genre.
