Flying Fortress - About the artist
From 1989 to 1995, Munich based Flying Fortress was a classic graffiti artist. It was around 1995 that he studied graphic design and after a creative drought he hit on the inspiration for creating his now iconic Teddy Troops. The tin hat wearing bear started popping up on walls in cities all over Europe. An army of bears was growing with every new street illustration as well as his following. At the time Flying Fortress was one of the few graffiti artists who’s illustrations came to represent their identity by having character or logo that was more important or recognisable than their tag. His artwork was a bridge from classic graffiti to what has now become generically referred to as street art. Originally many of Flying Fortress pieces were in the same uniform colours but eventually cutomisations of the military bear began to flow. Eventually a range of collectable Teddy Troop vinyls toy were released. As their popularity grew, more ranges and variations followed. The Teddy Troops continue to invade walls around the world. Flying Fortress has exhibited in many renowned galleries and has a military strength fan base.
