Herakut in Yekaterinburg

Urban Art | Seems to be quite cold over there in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg at the moment!

Nevertheless, the famous urban art duo Herakut hit the streets of this snowbound city and created, by assistance of the neighborhood kids, another huge mural in their well-known style of rough street-influenced lines and photo-realistic details…

Although I didn’t master the Russian language, I somehow understood (by the help of a famous translation tool) that this mural was painted on a wall of the local protectory for children and that the corresponding documentation is part of an upcoming documentary about this children’s home, which is called “Our House”!

If you are now interested in exploring some more photos of Hera and Akut in action, I would advice you to check out my “Urban Artists in Action” photo-series on urbanart-photography.eu.
