Moritz Green, born in 1979, grew up in Hamburg and first discovered graffiti at the age of 12. He literally sprayed every day and soon the negative consequences followed, as its practice repeatedly conflicted with the law. At the same time, he expanded his horizons by travelling through Europe, Asia and the USA and meeting artists from all over the world. Studying graphic design gave Moritz Green an inspiring, mature and reflective perspective to his artistic practice in a different context. Since 2009 Moritz Green has been a member of the worldwide acting sprayer collective Ultra-Boyz. Meanwhile his graffiti pieces in the urban space and studio-based art works influence each other. Combining graffiti and fine arts, Moritz Green developed his own artistic signature, which has moved beyond the pictorial language of graffiti artistically without ever forgetting its origins.
