The galleries biggest event by far was “Art From The New World” in 2010 at the Bristol City Museum, where Banksy had held his solo the year before. The exhibition saw over 60,000 visitors in only three months and established the American New Contemporary Art movement in the UK and Europe. But the best part may have been the opening night where Dita Von Teese performed one of her famous burlesque dances in an Edwardian-era British museum. Another highlight was the D*Face exhibition, “Going Nowhere Fast,” where CHG returned the favor and brought a huge UK talent to his proper recognition here in the States. The “Cheat Death” tombstone D*Face, placed on Charlie Sheen’s Walk-of-Fame star, brought a lot of attention.

HERAKUT’s Exhibition in L.A.

If you happen to be in Los Angeles today – March 26 make sure to visit HERAKUT’s exhibition titled “Masters Of Wrong” at Corey Helford Gallery. The show opens Saturday, March 26 from 7:00-11:00 PM and will remain on display through Wednesday, April 20 at the tastemaker gallery’s new expansive 12,000 square foot space on Anderson Street in downtown Los Angeles.

A month ago you could read an article about the German duo there: Meet Herakut.
Here is some more info about the two amazing artists:
After joining forces in 2004, HERA (Jasmin Siddiqui) and AKUT (Falk Lehmann) merged their names and styles to collaborate as HERAKUT. Since then, the duo have been painting murals all over the world, along with additional work on canvas, paper and film for gallery and museum shows.
Beyond international exhibitions around the world (France, Gaza, Germany and Jordan, among many others), live festival showings at Glastonbury (U.K.), Coachella (U.S.) and an appearance at the Happy 80th Birthday, Dalai Lama celebration (U.S.), this marks HERAKUT’s debut solo exhibition at the Corey Helford Gallery and first in their new downtown Los Angeles gallery. In advance of the “Masters Of Wrong” exhibition, HERAKUT painted a mural on the exterior wall of the gallery.

With “Masters Of Wrong,” HERAKUT continues to, in their words, “draw attention towards problematic social issues, personal ones or those of global scale.” Their own beliefs are inspired by a certain kind of optimism, “for as long as we can see the problems in front of us, we stand at a good enough distance to still fix it.’”

HERAKUT consider themselves as “storytellers” who want to share their thoughts and questions with the public, so their figurative work is always accompanied with text. Their process of painting is also a dialogue with both artists adding their individual techniques to the piece. Jasmin uses her drawing skills on finding the form and proportion of their characters, while Falk specializes on painting the photorealistic elements.
