AM stopped by LeBasse Projects this past weekend to attend the opening of “Hope’s Reply”, collaborative duo Herakut’s newest solo show. Melding a perfect combination of the raw stylings of the beautiful Hera (interviewed) and the amazing photorealism of Akut, the German street duo impressed with the richness and whimsy of their new body of work.

We were also pleasantly surprised to see that the artists decided to work on an installation for this show as it was originally billed as having a more of a minimalistic backdrop. The attention-grabbing mural took up residence on one of the walls and complemented the paintings nicely. Also, stop by and take a look at the work in person and you may noticed like we did that these pieces had more of a three-dimensional nature to them.
