Leading up to the opening of their solo show this weekend at Corey Helford Gallery, Herakut painted a new mural featuring their signature mix of photorealistic and abstract elements. The new piece on the side of the gallery was painted next something Ron English put up and you can definitely see that what they chose to paint was partially in reaction to that.

Take a look at some more cropped teasers below and add the March 26th opening to your calendar. Discuss Herakut here.

Project 256 is a unique non-commercial campaign that launched several days ago in Paris. By combining street art and digital technology, the innovative project aims to ease some of the suffering of people that call those same streets their home. The concept of this campaign is based on creating a portrait of a homeless person in the public space. The artist then adds a unique QR code next to the work, which leads to a video of an interview with the homeless person as well as […]
On Saturday, May 16th, Herakut and aptART opened an exclusive show at the studio and work space of Urban Nation in Berlin, presenting a collection of paintings, photographs and installations created both by German art duo and individuals & organizations across the Middle East, Europe and Africa. Displaced Thoughts is a show that was hugely influenced by Herakut’s visit to a Syrian refugee camp in Jordan in March last year.

Working on a slightly smaller section of the same wall as Doze Green (more on this later), Akut from Herakut, finished his large piece for POW! WOW! Hawaii (more coverage here) after 3-4 long days of work. Usually working as a part of duo, German-based artist had to find a way to paint this large piece by himself. This situation also inspired him to create an image of a wrestling toy man, feeding a small baby through a bottle completed with the text “my real challenges were outside of the […]
At 10am on Monday, Feb 9th, the mural painting part of POW! WOW! Hawaii 2015 officially begun with a traditional Hawaiian blessing ceremony at the Lana Lane headquarters in Kaka’ako in Honolulu.

During the winter months, we typically see a slowdown of street activity due to the colder weather. After a brief hiatus, our Streets: World Roundup feature returns with a summary of the intervening months.

Other notable walls come from ROA – Germany (source), Herakut – USA, […]
