Raised near the Alpines in the Allgäu area, Loomit developed an interest in sketching at early age. The local Baroque church, with its ceiling paintings, along with comic books, were early artistic influences. In 1983 Hip Hop became his new focus, especially bombing graffiti in Munich, where he and his mother moved to that year. After finishing school in 1987, he travelled to New York and met writers such as Seen and Zephyr. Loomit managed to make a living from graffiti as one of the first in Germany, painting a large wall at a popular flea market on Dachauer Street in Munich. Loomit travelled across Europe in the late1980s and early1900s, mainly to paint trains, giving him the opportunity to meet most of the pioneers in the field, along with the next generations of writers. In 1991 he went to Australia and New Zealand for six months, and then on to Canada and the US for five months, painting many murals along the way. In 1993 the old airport in Munich was turned into clubs, concert hall and a flea market, where he did most of the wall paintings, together with colleagues Mode 2 and Merda. Since 1996 he has had a studio in Ostbahnhof Munich, in an old food factory that now has murals from Os Gemeos and Seen.
