Herakut is a collaboration of the aliases Hera and Akut, two graffiti artists from Frankfurt and Erfurt. The artists met in 2004 at the Urban Arts Festival in Seville, Spain and have been painting together ever since. Hera is a classically trained painter who “creates gestural, emotional figures in a freestyle manner using numerous tools  including spray cans, brushes, and her hands.”   Akut is completely self-taught yet is skilled in creating  hyper-realistic images of animals and flesh using only a spray can. “What initially seemed like an unlikely pairing both conceptually and technically has since become one of the foremost collaborations in urban art and an innovative presence in contemporary painting.”
