interest in painting and for art in general started in his youth, but it was at
age 12 when he and his family moved to Heidelberg, Germany and settled into the
nearest high-rise estate Emmertsgrund that he began to tag, MC and bboy. From
there he traveled to Jams such as Freestyle Session and International Battle of
the Year competing with his crew The Southside Rockers in some of the most well
respected breakdancing competitions in the world. As a dancer he has performed
and toured with artists from the Black Eyed Peas to KRS ONE. As a visual artist
Scotty76 pieces can be found from Heidelberg to Hong Kong with his crew "The
Phunk Masters," which were known far beyond national borders for their style.
His artwork adorns retail shops, clothing lines, graffiti books and album covers
from Tattowierungen as the zBvon Rapqueen Cora E to Massive Attack. One of his
greatest works in 2009 was an 8 x 3 m large mural that he painted at the Playboy
mansion for Hugh Heffner.
He is also well known for designing urban
wear dating back to 1995 when he painted his first T-shirt under the motto "The
World is Yours." Since then he has designed for labels such as Aero Soul, El
Presidente, Artistik World, the ADIDAS "End to End" collection and the U.S.
designer label Fj560. He recently launched his highly anticiapted line
Artyllerie, which hit stores throughout Europe in March 2011.
