NEWS \\ City of Gold Urban Art Festival 2013 announced

The 2013 edition of City of Gold Urban Art Festival is coming soon…

We are super excited after hearing the announcement of the first featured artist; Herakut from Germany.

Herakut - OneThirty3 from onethirty3 on Vimeo.

Herakut is the graffiti duo of Hera (Jasmin Siddiqui) and Akut (Falk Lehmann). Since meeting in 2004, they have exhibited their works worldwide and have a very distinct graffiti style, often working with various mediums on outside walls and in galleries (including sculpture). Most of their work is improvised as the two combine their different skills - Akut’s photo-realism and Hera’s spontaneous and almost ‘dirty’ means of painting - resulting in almost dreamlike paintings which grab the viewers attention.

Looking forward to seeing who else is going to grace Johannesburg with their art…
