Biography / Stohead

Behind the artist name “Stohead” stands Christoph Haessler, one of the most famous German artists in the field of street art, especially graffiti. Already at the end of the 1980s he began to deal with writing and calligraphy via the path of classical graffiti. He has become a specialist in this field through his decades of involvement with typeface and letters. In July 2020 he realized a ONE WALL in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

Through his years evolving as an artist, Christoph has gone through several stages of development in styles. Starting as so many of his kind with graffiti in the late 80s he naturally became accustomed to lettering and calligraphy. Scripture is the bearer of information, writing makes it possible to ban thoughts and feelings into a form and it is here where Stohead found his bridge between writing in the streets and the art form we have come to know in the past years. As with any good artist the key is to constantly evolve and reinvent oneself without loosing one’s identity as an artist.

Stohead lives and works in Berlin. In the years 2000-2006 he was part of the studio community getting-up in Hamburg.
