Hera and Akut are two of the most interesting urban artists in Europe. Here the full body of their work is presented for the first time. On the one hand the female part Hera is using the modern stylistic device of the urban art – the roughness of her sketchiness and the charm of her typographical elements from the street, to broach the issue of classical humanistic questions. Hera manages to pass very clear emotions by the use of just a few quick lines.On the other hand the male part Akut transports the old-fashioned traditional discipline of realistic painting to the present by using the medium spray can. With his absolute perfect execution Akut amazes even hard-boiled graffiti activists.
Their pictures are the perfect symbiosis of snotty Street Art and realism with attention to detail. A harmony of two aesthetics which is unique, no doubt.
What started with first graffiti experiences in the beginning of the 90s – back then in separate ways for both of them - lead to the pseudonym Herakut.
The Perfect Merge is a book with lots of details made by the artists in their own. Over above their unmistakable style adds this book a very individual touch.
