Herakut is actually a partnership between Jasmin Siddiqui Hera and Falk Lehmann Akut. Both of them studied Visual Communication and Graphic Design with extensive backgrounds in graffiti. Their collaborations can be found all over the world including San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Melbourne, Kathmandu, and New York. They started working together in 2004 with Hera setting the character’s form while Akut paints the photorealistic elements. References to the character’s life can often be found as short quotes or passages integrated into the artwork itself. This fantastically artistic duo is currently based in Germany.
