"Rasselbande III" / new print edition

We are happy to announce the new chapter of the "Rasselbande" graffiti life story of FLYING FÖRTRESS (...and some unnamed friends...)!

Rasselbande.... "little rascals". A nickname for cheeky kids as "rassel" refers to the sound of a baby's rattle... but also describes the sound of a spraycan when shaken.

 

From the first "Rasselbande" print design the gang now turned older and mature (aka Dad-life-boring...). So this is the next (but not the last) chapter of FÖRTRESS' graffiti life history and a hommage to tfe that changes while it moves forward unstoppable. So again the design features some vintage oldschool spraycans enjoying their days.

 

Print details:

 

- "Rasselbande III" by FLYING FÖRTRESS

- size: 70x50cm

- high pigmented giclée print

- signed and numbered by the artist

- embossed FÖRTRESS logo

- year: 2023

- edition of 50

- without frame / shipped rolled

 

Price: 120€

plus additional shipping

 

Available only at the gallery's website here:

 

https://affenfaustgalerie.de/en/shop/item/flying-foertress-rasselbande-lll/

 

 

There is also a special deal on the "Rasselbande I & III" set:

https://affenfaustgalerie.de/en/shop/item/flying-foertress-rasselbande-set/

 

"Rasselbande I-III" is currently on display at AFFENFAUST GALERIE for the group show "Mistaken Identities". FLYING FÖRTRESS also painted the "Rasselbande III" as a big wall mura inside the gallery.

"R.E.S.S. Set Decks" / Skateboard Art

"Finally (like really finally!) i was able to finish this art piece this year!

I started way back in 2003 to sew those helmets made of felt fabric for a set of 4x skateboards. But i never finished it back then. So the helmets ended up in a box in my basement. So in 2021 i was invited by ROLLING VINYL to contribute askateboard art piece and i decided to gat my hands back on this set. It took me literally another 12 month to have it ready then.... what a fight!!

 

So here we go: it's up on the RV webshop:

First Ever! Thank You!

A big thank-you to the Anonymous who picked up my "First Förtress Sticker" NFT over on Opensea.io

 

In a way this is like a "late refund" for my very first investment to get stickers done to hit the streets in 2001. It was a bit more hustle to get some offset stickers back in those days...

Literally i had to start collecting a bunch of designs from artist friends to set up a whole sticker-paper-panel to drop the price on the single sticker designs.

And i still running this sticker game 20 years later.

But not alone...

 

I just started to move to this new space.

#NFT #meta #space

 

https://opensea.io/TeddyTroops

 

NFT...?

Why?

Förty, why?

 

Whenever i do new things there are these voices...

"Why you're spraying these Teddy Troops flops now instead of classic Graffiti letters with arrows and bubble-background, Förty? you used to do sick styles and so cool monster characters!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

I also remember those voices saying a bit later:

"Why you're doing stickers/posters now, Förty? you used to do cool flops!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

And the same voices later on my first steps into the vinyl-/designer-toy space:

"Why you're doing these vinyl toys now, Förty? you used to do cool stickers!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

And now like another déjà vu over again:

"Why you're doing NFTs now, Förty? you used to do cool vinyl-toys!"...

"Because i love this new space, i am multi-discipline and i want to move... move new directions. move forward."

 

So... did i listen? ;-)

Did i keep standing still?

Did i move?

...

 

Thank you all for the strong support over the last 2(!) decades!

I will keep moving forward. I am promising this to those voices!

Feel free to keep following me on my travels and journeys.

 

This new space will be new fun together!*

And btw: it's not like "a totally new" space. Almost all of my work is created digitally and this is the tool & space where my things "come to life"!

 

Follow up to see the NFT Teddy Troops start marching soon in Q1-2022!

 

Everything will happen in the Cardano blockchain space and this is the HQ:

 

http://teddytroops.io

 

 

 

 

(*sooner or later i will drop some more words & thoughts here about the NFT and meta space... why it is a "move to it" space. benefits for me as an artist... and for you as a fan/supporter/collector. one important thing right now to say is that it's time to give up some bad old habits -  like to create so much (digital) work for free - only to help building up Marc's Butterberg empire.. it's time to take back your own profitability and bring it to a decentralize space... and! there will be new vinyls, stickers & flops in 2022, too! promised!)

"Train Model Trooper - The Big AKN"

Also i finished this canvas i started in 2016-or-so for my ongoing artwork series "Train Model Trooper". This "The Big AKN" is one of the 3x bigger artworks i did (beside the "Colibri" and "Istanbul"). These "AKN" train models were running on a private line in Hamburg/DE and got sold to a scrap yard place. It was a fun action night to paint them at an un-usual stop-over place at the habour, on their way to the graveyard. We gave them some colorful "last funeral cortege". As these cars were "just trashers", this Trooper on canvas got the "rusty industrial marker" outlines.

"Rusty Saigon Trooper" / Custom Colab

Here we have some brandnew photos of the "just landed" customized "classic 10-incher" Teddy Trooper.

It's an "update" colaboration of FLYING FÖRTRESS and LYRIC_ONE.

Originally the "SAIGON SQUAD" was made in 2006 by FLYING FÖRTRESS (one of his rare handpainted original customized Teddy Troops figures!) for a group show of custom TTs.

 

But then he got lost.... missing in action.

And returned damaged and wounded a couple of years later...

 

So last year FÖRTRESS joined forces with LYRIC_ONE to update the Trooper by turning all these bruises-by-accident into some rusty-weathered-look-in-purpose. So here we have the new but old-looking "RUSTY SAIGON SQUAD" Trooper...

Back from the fields!

 

Big Thank-You! to LYRIC_ONE to "proper messed him up"!

FDC Feldpost & Luftpost / new print set

"FDC Feldpost & FDC Luftpost" / print set by FLYING FÖRTRESS


Printed on unique original vintage "FDCs - First Day Covers" by

Deutsche Post/German Post (a thing from "stamp collecting").
Each print is unique due to the different stamps & designs of the FDCs!

 

The "FDC Feldpost Basic" edition comes in 4x different colors to choose from:
orange - grey - silver - blue / ...and has 1x original stamp on each letter.

 

 

The "FDC Feldpost Green" has a totally all-new green print colorway and is printed on FDCs with 2x or more original stamps on each letter.

 

The "FDC Feldpost Yellow" is printed on FDCs with 4x original stamps on each letter (the "rare and hard to find"-ones from stamp-collecting...)

The "FDC Feldpost" prints will be sent well protected in an extra cardboard envelope/parcel.
The "FDC Luftpost" print will be sent seperately as a "regular letter by post" with new stamps, stickers & your postal address written by hand on it!
So the "FDC Luftpost" might carry some bend&bruises as it has been trough a Post-journey and tells an individual story then ;-)

The idea was to give those "deadstock collectors' letters" a chance to do their "duty" and become a real letter finally once in their life-time!

To help to fullfill their original destiny!

R2D2 Troopers for charity

This little robot with a rose (and heart).


While the first "Star Wars - Jawas" related series of hand-drawinn Troopers was purely for my "personal consumption" (buying "LEGO Star Wars" for the kids&me to kill some time during lockdown no.2)...

...this first series of 10x "R2D2 Troopers" will raise money for charity!


All profit made goes to "Förderverein Winternotprogramm für Obdachlose" (shelter & warm food for Hamburg's homeless people during this freezy winter times).
So 100% of the brutto coins made with sales of these little robots will be donated!
VAT & PAYPAL-fee from all sales is on me — i will take that to make it a round sum! I will provide donation-receipt later then on my social media channel (see Instagram).
Thank you to help helping!
Bleep bleep!

UPDATE:

i just send the collected donation straight to the charitable society!


This is the first set of 10x drawings (plus 2x additional A.P.s extra / they have a few "weird extra ink" on it... test run... see photos). I made it a total series of 22 (... R2D2... you get it!). Not sure if i have the nerves & time to draw the missing 12x pieces... let's see. So you better grab it now to make sure you own it and you helped me to help! :-)

• original handdrawn artworks by FLYING FÖRTRESS
• alcohol-markers on 220g/qm Hahnemühle FineArt Aquarell D'Aqua paper
• size: 24 x 17 cm / approx. 9.4 x 6.7 inches

All proceeds will go to Colormakerz workshop to help continue to spread love and colorz all around.

CLUTTER Magazine's Hall Of Fame / Designer Toy Award 2019

We made it!

We made it to the "Hall Of Fame"!

 

Thank you CLUTTER MAGAZINE for the "Designer Toy Award 2019"!

 

I love the "award"-figure design by Pete Fowler.

Indeed Fowler's and Jarvis' toys made me get into collecting vinyls years ago (and later designing vinyl figures myself).

And so does my little girl and so the award already made it her personal property in her room... :-)

Each one teach one...

Tigerschnegel King

„TIGERSCHNEGEL KING“

 

FÖRTRESS: "i am doing my first ever spring gardening in my new place and i am just coming across so many new and unknown things, plants and animals. The tigerslug/Tigerschnegel is a spiecies of the nudibranch/Nacktschnecke. But the kind of a „good slugs“ as the Tigerschnegel is predatory and cannibalic to the other „bad slugs“, eating their clutches and even whole slugs. It is a gardener’s sweetheart as it helps to protect your vegetable beds! #keepthemalive So beside the „tiger“ within its name this self-destruction within the slug breed also reminded me on the behavior of all the actors and their story in the #netflix documentary... somehow. So this is my today’s quick contribution to the trending meme hype... with a little Förtress twist!"

Some Eastern colors way back from the legendary* "Easter Attack" on the Munich S-train system in 1993. When ET420 steel horses were parked in the depot for 2 nights...!

(*maybe "legandary" only for a few retro-minded old blokes like me who had been involved...)

"Stay Home - Let's Puzzle" / solidarity art puzzle

"Rasselbande" by FLYING FÖRTRESS / limited art puzzle edition

w/ AFFENFAUST GALERIE Hamburg available online now.

 

"Dear Folks!

We have thought about how we can help in the current situation as a gallery.

Solidarity is the order of the day! In particular solidarity towards elderly people, towards people with pre-existing conditions and towards people who are marginalized in our society anyway, people who are homeless and people who have to flee.

Furthermore, we are aware that freelance artists in particular will have financial problems and of course we as a gallery also have to develop a plan to get through the next months.

So how do we manage to make sure that people stay at home, that we don't forget the poorest people in our society, that we can support artists and that we stay as a company?

WE PUZZLE!

We are currently in the process of having puzzles with art motifs produced*. In the beginning we have: Nychos, Okuda, Dopperdenk, Ana Bar
