Openings: Herakut – No Placebos @ Red Flagg

German collaborative street art sensation Herakut (interviewed) opened their show “No Placebos” last night at Red Flagg in New York. Plenty of fans were in attendance, despite the fact that it was a “surprise” show with it being announced only the day before the opening. The packed house was definitely a testament to the rapid ascendancy and popularity of their work. The lovely Jasmin aka “Hera” and Falk aka “Akut” were on hand to chat with fans as well as sign copies of their recently […]

Preview: The Perfect Merge – Herakut

Openings: Herakut “Dirty Laundry” Show (UK)

Herakut’s (interviewed) show “Dirty Laundry” (previewed) is officially opening tonight but here are some photos from the preview night courtesy of Romanywg (photographer extraordinaire). The setup looks amazing – from the “flesh suit laundry” installation to the presumably custom painted walls. Everything was top notch. We had originally thought that because of the fact that it was an exhibition of pre-commissioned paintings that it would be a pretty random show.  We were wrong.  All the pieces in this new body of work definitely fits together […]

Update: Herakut “Dirty Laundry” Show (UK)

Since we last previewed some paintings and interviewed Herakut, Some new images have leaked for the show opening on November 28th. Looks like they have worked on more “rat children” paintings. We are quite excited about this show. Make sure you check out the show if you are London this weekend 22 Wellington St. Opera Quarter Covent Garden WC2E 7DD More images after the jump.

Preview/Interviews: Herakut “Dirty Laundry” Show (UK)

German collaborative duo Herakut will be opening a show entitled “Dirty Laundry” on November 28th. The show was organized by campobarbossa who arranged for a venue in London’s Covent Garden. All the works are pre-commissioned paintings and sketches so this will strictly be an exhibition with no sales. We quite like the combination of Akut’s photorealistic spray paint and Hera’s more fluid broad strokes.  Jasmin aka Hera took some time to answer some questions and share some preview images with us.
