GOLDEN GREEN / MORITZ GOLDGRUEN (1979)
Golden Green is internationally known for his unique Graffiti aesthetic. The artist encrypts the typical stylistic elements into a language of its own – a retro futuristic universe full of surreal characters, clever constructed letters and flickering shapes in bright pastel colors. In addition to his passion for spraycan art he works across printing, painting and papercut. His artwork beyond Graffiti reveal a more subtle, reflective side and complete the picture of the versatile artist.

The artist lives and works in Hamburg, Germany. He is a member of the european artist group Ultraboyz (UB).
