Jasmin Siddiqui and Falk Lehmann, or Hera and Akut, the members of internationally known artist duo known as Herakut, are opening their solo show @ Ruttkowski;68 gallery in Cologne on August 29th. Through 10 years of collaborating on both large, outdoor murals and indoor exhibitions, they created a recognizable style which they’ve been known for. Strongly influenced by graffiti and street art, their unique signature style is famous for its melancholy and gratification. By mixing raw, expressive brush/line work, with realistic elements, along with text and messages, their new work kept the signature poetic and emotive feel. Using pastel, dimmed colors, they achieve more direct and honest impact as well as vintage feel to their work.
The first venture from new Australian arts project Black Canyon opens in Melbourne next Friday, August 29.
‘Welcome To Black Canyon’ is set to feature large-scale print work by a lineup of artists from Spain, France, England, Canada, Germany and the USA (many of whom have never shown in Australia before) alongside a slew of local favourites.
Low Bros have been getting busy in Germany, recently releasing this new video from the Work’n’Progress – Urban Art wall project at WerkStadt Sending in Munich:

Our favourite Aussie export (after VB and Vegemite) has returned to the land down under for a little spraycation in his home town of Melbourne, where he’s been throwing up rap sprays to accompany his latest show, ‘Untold’, at Backwoods Gallery.
James Reka is a young contemporary Australian artist based in Berlin, Germany. His origins lie in the alleyways and train lines of Melbourne’s inner-suburbs where he spent over a decade refining his now-emblematic aesthetic. His character work has come to represent the beginnings of a new style of street art: clean, unique and not necessarily on the street (much to his mother’s joy). With an amazing show opening tomorrow night (6 June) at Backwoods Gallery, Reka took time to talk to Damo.
The DUBL TRUBL Collective are pleased to release the first in a series of films ahead of their group exhibition taking place September 2014 in Berlin, Germany. Featuring LUSH & ROWDY.

Britain’s beloved stencil duo Snik struck Brick Lane last month with a triptych of stencils from Marc Laroche’s haunting photo-series, “hair”. The copper clad portraits can be caught on Hanbury Street in the beating heart of the London Shoreditch area.
So VNA’s Jodie got chatting with Nik, one half of the prolific double act, during a rare quiet moment nestled in a packed schedule of exhibitions, printmaking and painting, to try to find out a bit about what the past, present and future holds for the hardworking pair.
Teaser for the upcoming exhibition, ‘Abyss’, by 1010 at Affenfaust Galerie on the 12.04.14.
The current exhibition shows mainly paperworks and acrylic paintings from his Abyss Series.
1010 was born 1979 in Rastenburg and has been living and working in Hamburg since 1987.
In his art, he deals with language, symbols and signs, with automatisms of perception and the structures of society. 1010 is a conceptualist. His art doesn´t explain itself. An elaborate system underlies it, which evolved over the last years. It´s up to the viewer to perhaps detect it on his own.
For the first time this brilliant documentary about the young art scene in Berlin, featuring different urban artists, gallerists, designers and photographers is available with English subtitles. Take a long lunch, curl up in your desk chair with a sandwich and enjoy.
