HERAKUT


Herakut is an artist duo made of Jasmin Siddiqui, born 1981 in Frankfurt, West Germany, and Falk Lehmann, born 1977 in Schmalkalden, East Germany. Their artistic style is as symbiotic as their name Herakut, which in itself is the symbiosis of the two individuals Graffiti synonyms Hera and Akut.

Since 2004 Herakut has exhibited work in solo exhibitions cities like London, Los Angeles, Berlin, San Francisco, New York and Melbourne, and created murals and installations in Mexico, Russia, Canada, New Zealand, Norway, Nepal and many, many more. Wherever they went, they left behind huge paintings that were planned and sketched out right there and then. The freestyle element of their work is what makes every mural a “snap-shot” of the moment, thought up right in front of the wall itself, integrating the atmosphere of the place, its neighbors, its color range, its language. Every place deserves an authentic artistic reflection and a message that fits perfectly.
