Current solo show
24.02.2020 – 29.02.2020
Well known for his Teddy Troopers artist Flying Förtress is back in Zurich! Kolly Gallery presents a new set of art works from 24 to 29 February 2020.
The title of the series Rasselbande II derives from a painting with the same name which was exhibited at the Kolly Gallery back in 2015. The painting that was exhibited at Flying Förtress’ solo show entitled Urban Insignia represented a so- called „Rasselbande“, German for a gang of wild and infantile youngsters and troublemakers.
The artist associates his own and real-life spray can gang to it. Therefore, he assigns each of them an individual attribute, such as, a pet, various tools as well as a pocket flask. Being part of a social environment is common ground in the graffiti tradition, so every region or district has its own „gang“. Not only social environment provides a feeling of togetherness but also security and strength.
