Earlier this month, we shared some photos with you of the latest installation of The Giant Storybook Project from Herakut on the streets of Melbourne. The German duo were also in town for their latest solo show at the Metro Gallery entitled Too High To Heal featuring their signature mix of abstract and photorealistic painting. Embellishments that accompanied the work spilled onto the walls of the showspace, leading to a finished feel to the exhbition. Photo credit: Dean Sunshine. Discuss Herakut here.
Back in November, we shared with you a longstanding project that street muralists Herakut have been working on called The Giant Storybook Project. Continuing their plan for creating a children’s book from murals painted around the world, the duo have a now completed their ninth piece in the series in Melbourne (639 Brunswick St Fitzroy North VIC 3068, Australia). While in town, they recently opened a show entitled Too High To Heal at the Metro Gallery so fans of their work can get a double dose [...]
It’s time to start winding down our Basel Week Miami coverage here on AM with another look at the PULSE art fair (highlights here). We’ve already shared photos from a couple booths there (Joshua Liner & Jonathan LeVine), and there is a look at a third booth – LeBasse Projects. Included for the showing were works from artists like Yoskay Yamamoto, Seonna Hong, Thomas Doyle, Herakut, and Miss Van. Photo credit: Top image by Yoskay Yamamoto, All others by Arrested Motion. Discuss Basel Week Miami here.
AM will be checking out the PULSE art fair later today (one of the many satellite events during Basel Week Miami). Those planning to attend at some point this week will also see this huge Herakut mural soaring above the horizon across from the entrance of the fair. The wall is a continuation of the German duo’s ambitious Giant Storybook Project that we recently featured. Make sure you check it out while you are in town… Discuss Herakut here.
It’s time to update you on something that German duo Herakut have been working on recently – The Giant Storybook Project. Acting on their long-time desires to create a children’s book, Jasmin (interviewed) and Falk have taken to the streets around the world to paint the “pages” of their story. Murals of Lily, Jay, two giants, and their adventures have already hit the walls in Kentucky, Germany, Montreal, Toronto, Rochester, and San Francisco. We’ll be taking a closer look at this project (scheduled to go through 2013) as it [...]
Earlier this year, German graff duo Herakut teamed up with Lucent Dossier (covered) to bring a unique show which was both part live painting, part acrobatic extravaganza. Many fans of both Herakut and Lucent missed out on the performance since it only played twice in front of an audience. However, here we have a short documentary directed by theonepointeight, which shows a rare behind the scenes look into the making of the show as well as the final performances. Looks can be a bit deceiving [...]

For our summary of walls this week, we have for you as our featured wall – REYES in Detroit. The motor city has become one of the hotspots for street activity recently as the tanking economy has ironically led to more abandoned buildings facilitating the rise of public art. Also, the Detroit Beautification Project (first mentioned here) has been bringing in artists from all over to get up around town. We’ll have a summary on the project soon (also see Sever’s piece) but for now [...]
