Urban Street Art - Herakut: Germany (2 pics)

This huge street mural comes to us from collaborative street artists, Herakut. A young girl with a peculiar headpiece is seen writing on the wall, "Art doesn't help people, people help people."

Herakut is made up of two two graffiti artists, Hera and Akut. The male and female duo have been working together since 2004. Herakut combine deeply contrasting styles – Akut’s photorealist spray paint, with Hera’s more traditional painterly methods – to create highly stylized street works.

Often after a background done by Hera, Akut creates a detailed layer for a face without knowing what kind of body Hera will add. The mixing of two very different styles often results in the finished piece delivering a uniquely schizophrenic feel.
