During their visit in Paris HERAKUT completed their first mural in the capital. The fresco was made possible with the support from the curator Galerie Mathgoth. The duo HERA (Jasmin Siddiqui) and AKUT (Falk Lehman) have been working together for over a decade.
The new addition to the 13th district of Paris took three days of hard work for the artists to produce and was also supported by both the town council and the owner of the building.
Prior to completion the artistic duo from Germany presented three sketches for the locals to chose. AKUT’s hyper-realistic work on the eyes, the mouth and the hands was based on a student who happened to pass by the mural and who accepted to be the muse of the day! The artists also took some additional photographs of her as an inspiration as they continued in their process.
Today we are pleased to share some exclusive photos courtesy of Galerie Mathgoth and if you happen to be in Paris at the end of November it will be the occasion for you to visit the artists’ first exhibition in France. Keep an eye for more info and have a look at our coverage below including the making of.
