Since 2004, the German street art duo called Herakut is a partnership between two artists Hera and Akut. Their art works can be found in big cities around the world – from Toronto to Kathmandu, from San Francisco to Melbourne. Hera sets the characters’ form and proportions, whilst Akut paints the photorealistic elements. Their art works ‘natural home’ is the public space, where everyone can take a pause from the city buzz in front of one of their massive murals. The short quotes, passages or descriptions written next to the figures are references to the character’s life. As a central theme, their figures can be seen in the context of social fractions and collective constraints, but also embedded into fabulous quotes that tell us of love.
