Herakut’s paintings are sensual and wild; technically they offer an outstanding creative dualism. Akut’s photorealistic details blend in with Hera’s more gestural strokes in canvases that articulate stories of triumph and discomfort. All are enriched by the presence of texts, which allow viewers to immediately enter the narrative.

Their artworks are present in the major cities around the world, from Toronto to Kathmandu, from San Francisco to Melbourne. Today they arrive in Rome for their first solo exhibition in Italy.

Santa Miseria is a collection of thoughts and images that have marked and made unique the artists’ encounters with different individuals and their communities met during moments of deep sharing and exchange. Herakut have travelled the world and have been entrusted with many personal stories, which have penetrated the artists’ spirit, generating the magic that animates their entire creative process.

The exhibition opens its doors on September 17 at the Galleria Varsi.
