Herakut is the German duo of two graffiti artists – individually named Hera and Akut. Their collaboration began when they first met in 2004 at the Urban Art Festival Sevilla in Spain. Since then they have been jointly producing stunning street art around the world.
Today, Herakut is in Los Angeles and keeping very busy. Recently they participated in the opening of the show Outside/In at LeBasse Projects’ Culver City Gallery. Outside/In features a group of internationally-known contemporary street artists, including Herakut (Germany), Case (Germany), Hush (UK), Alexandros Vasmoulakis (Greece), SharkToof (USA) and Bumblebee (USA).
After the LA exhibit, Outside/In and the participating artists will continue to New Hampshire. The New Hampshire exhibit, opening May 11th, will showcase a separate series of paintings. The artists will be traveling to paint a selection of walls throughout the city,
