German graffiti artists and storytellers HERAKUT are coming to downtown Los Angeles’ Corey Helford Gallery this Feb. 24th – Mar. 31st? Their collection titled “herakut’s RENTAL ASYLUM,” this exhibition of all new works and will inhabit CHG’s 4,500 square-foot main gallery.
“The show is called ‘Rental Asylum’ — as we all need to rent a place somewhere far from today’s actual reality, don’t we? And all our creatures on canvas are the happy patients of our rental asylum. They all have different reasons for checking in with us, for a bit, before facing the shit show our world has become.”
HERAKUT consider themselves “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.
