Seen: Herakut Mural in Culver City


German street art power duo Herakut spent the better part of  Tuesday and Wednesday creating two new murals on adjacent sides of a large building on the corner of Washington and National in Culver City.  Arranged by LeBasse Projects and Branded Art, the murals are part of LeBasse’s  dual city Outside/In show, which began with an opening in LA last weekend and will open  at the Portsmouth Museum in New Hampshire on the 12th.

The two new murals showcase Hera and Akut’s skills within a slightly lighter mood than many of their other walls.  As with much of their work children are the focus.  The mix of photorealistic details with painterly streaks of color and defined strokes drives the allure of these pieces.  Fun fact:  The skateboarding Angel is based on the son of videographer Jeremy Lynch.

It sounds as if Herakut has one last LA mural in the works before they fly off to Portsmouth to hit 3 separate walls.  It’s New England’s turn.  After that?  Tel Aviv, Israel.
