Herakut are back in London for the first time since 2008 for a highly anticipated new show and a book signing event. It is safe to say one (Hera) could not work without the other (Akut) to produce this unmistakeable style of street art-cum-illustration. So naturally, their’s is an organic process, and one not informed by the market or other art world pressures.
The book will feature their various works in the form of murals, on the street, sketches, stills from an animated short film and sculptures. With a big focus on reaching out and sharing their work with many audiences, Herakut have obtained a huge following. The book tells the story behind their own stories, their visual artworks. Exclusive to curators of the show, Shea & Ziegler, Herakut will present a limited edition box set which includes a signed and numbered lithograph print alongside a signed copy of ‘After the Laughter’ set in a silkscreen-printed presentation box. The box set will officially go on sale at the opening reception on May 31st, and is limited to an edition of just 100.
A collection of completely new works will also been on display.
‘After the Laughter,’ Herakut.
The Gallery, 99 Mount Street, London, W1K 2TF.
Opening hours: Tues-Sun: 10:30am – 5:30pm.
