Herakut: The Perfect Merge
Jasmin Siddiqui, Falk Lehmann (Herakut):
The Perfect Merge

For four remarkably productive years, the graffiti loving and street art affiliated “storytellers,” Hera and Akut, have combined their artistic skills and individual specialties in order to create one odd but always exquisitely beautiful, instantly recognizable style: Herakut.
Herakut: The Perfect Merge(4) Herakut: The Perfect Merge(5)

It’s an extremely contradictory mix of ingredients — Akut’s autodidactic but top-level photorealism and Hera’s classically educated though Don’t-Give-A-Shit-roughness — that results in a surprisingly well-balanced fusion of respect for each other’s qualities and the shared urge to capture life’s anecdotes with brush and spray can.

For the first time this book explores the interpersonal and creative processes behind the duo’s murals and canvas paintings, which have attracted the attention of the international art scene.
