“Looking back on the distance we have come since forming our little artist-duo Herakut in 2004, we can divide up our path into three segments: A) getting no attention, B) getting tons of attention, and C) trying to feel as free as in (A) while assuming all the responsibility that comes with (B).” (Hera) Since Herakut: The Perfect Merge was published in 2008, the prolific street art duo Herakut has risen to the spotlight in the international art world.

Herakut — After the Laughter takes an intimate view at the individuals behind the impressive pieces, as well as their dynamic as a team, their interior styles, and their place within the art world. Designed as a scrapbook by Hera and Akut, the title features all new murals, works on canvas, and sketches.

The book is collaged with images in different mediums and includes revealing photographs of the duo. All elements are woven into a multilayered, poetic reflection on art and its place in the world, with a range of freeform ideas penned artfully on the book pages in Herakut’s signature lettering. Masking tape edges and crossed out pencil confessions add to the personal, forthright style — an open invitation into the frenzied minds and rapid-fire hands of a unique artistic team.

208 pages, Hardcover, 8 1/4'' x 10 1/4'' (210 x 260 mm)
350 color illustrations, English
