Flying Förtress is an outstanding artist who has pushed Graffiti in the early days by new innovative impulses such as the idea of consequent seriality. His hallmark is the well-known Teddy Trooper figural icon. Created about 13 years ago, Förtress and the Teddy Troops are still present and visible in the public urban space. Together with DRAW A LINE Berlin he has now released a limited and customized 2 color screen print of the iconic Teddytroops, available here. Above you can find a nice video interview with the man himself:
A water park was built in the 1980′s to look like the 1950′s and abandoned in the 2000′s so there was a creepy aura in the air of a failed American Dream that once stood there. The scenery was blessed with Trustocorp’s installations prior to our arrival and had conveyed the dismantled dream perfectly through their placement and execution as they manipulated the old billboards into their own style. Most have seen this place on their trips to and from Los Angeles to Las Vegas but didn’t know exactly what it was and I had an itch to bring it to life. With temperatures reaching past 100F and the constant fear of getting killed by a tweaker I made sure each artist finished their walls within daylight and in one trip. Artists involved are Risk, INSA, Meggs, Echoand Steve Martinez of UGLAR.

For the modern day graffiti art movement, the name Jeroo is infamous the world over. The German born artist has written his name in multiple continents, in ever changing styles with multiple levels of difficulty. But he is not just restricted to walls. As a practising artist and teacher, he is also active in studio art practice. We were lucky enough to be invited and watch him at work. Aside from art making, we were also able to speak to him about his new book, “Graffiti School” released by Thames and Hudson. Graffiti School is possibly the most in depth how-to books about graffiti for students that has been put to print. See more after the jump:
