I Had to Cage You, 'cause I Envied You to Much

HerakutSeptember 2011


Stavanger, Norway

Long time collaborators Hera and Akut have been creating public artwork together since 2004 under the alias Herakut. The contrast in their respective styles is dramatic, however each piece they create is united by the unquestionable skill of both artists. Akut’s photorealist abilities are softened by Hera’s more illustrative and story-telling style.

This outdoor mural was one gleaming facet of the work that Herakut created for Nuart in 2011. This body of work included a large immersive installation with a common thematic reference point, also featuring caged monkeys and a disgruntled child with an ill-fitting crown.
