I first Branded Arts Building 8810 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232

It was this piece back in 2012 on the Branded Arts Building (8810 Washington Blvd. Culver City, CA 90232) that I first fell in love with HERAKUT. Those eyes.

One look and you'll agree that there is much power and beauty to be found in Herakut's works of art. Albeit dark in nature, the imagery found in Herakut's works is striking, conveying a myriad of emotions through the main focus of their works: the eyes. It is this emphasis on a darker color palette that serves as a background to their murals while adding a vibrant energy to these specific elements chosen to be emphasized in their creations. In contrast to their more recognizable works, Herakut has also delved into the more strict black and white color palette. Nevertheless, the combination of more modern elements with their customary conventional techniques allows the two-person German street artist team to bring to life every single character portrayed in their art at a more relatable level in today's art scene.

With “Masters Of Wrong,” HERAKUT continues to, in their words, “draw attention towards problematic social issues, personal ones or those of global scale.” Their own beliefs are inspired by a certain kind of optimism, “for as long as we can see the problems in front of us, we stand at a good enough distance to still fix it.’”
