Teddy Troops Takeover Tanaka

Germany’s Flying Fortress has been a regular visitor to New York City over the last few years, thanks in part to his close connections to Robots Will Kill. While he’s contributed works to a number of group shows, this Friday’s The One-Man Army show at Mighty Tanaka marks his first New York solo show. He’s been in the U.S. for a few weeks now and has painted two massive new murals in Bushwick, both in collaboration with Nychos and others. The most recent mural (above) is a preview of the Vaughan Bode inspired work – aka his “Bodentruppen”, a pun on the German word for ground troops – he will show at Tanaka. Just to get you in the mood, I’ve put together some of my favorite Teddy Troop pieces from past visits to New York below.
