HERA & AKUT - two artists, who couldn't be more different in their Styles as individuals. However, together they're forming one of the most interesting aspiring artist-duo nowadays. Their pictures are the perfect symbiosis of snotty Street Art and realism with attention to detail.
The book - THE PERFECT MERGE (ISBN: 978-3-939566-24-3) shows in an impressive way that the mixture of two
such different Styles can lead to something so harmonical. On the one hand the female part HERA is using the modern stylistic device of the urban art - the roughness of her sketchiness and the charme of her typographical elements from the street, to broach the issue of classical humanistic questions.
On the other hand the male part AKUT transports the ald-fashioned tradional discipline of the realistic painting to the present by using the medium spray can. With his absolut perfect execution AKUT amazes even the hard-boiled graffiti activists.
At the same time HERA manages to pass very clear emotions. The result of this combined work is the fanciful cooperation in many levels. A harmonie of two aesthetics which is unique, no doubt.
Which with the beginning of the 90s started with the first graffiti experiences of them both - back then in separate ways, lead to the pseudonym HERAKUT. Shortly after that the exhibitions and remittance work from London to Mexico city followed.
On 200 coloured pages the reader gets an impression of their work of the last couple of years. THE PERFECT MERGE is a book with lots of details made by the artists in their own. Over above their unmistakable style adds this book a very individual touch.
