Herakut – “The Giant Storybook Project” in Frankfurt

Nuova tappa per il progetto itinerante “The Giant Storybook Project”, il duo tedesco Herakut ha avuto l’opportunità di dipingere questa grande parete di ben 15 metri d’altezza nel centro di Francoforte in Germania.
Con il titolo “There is something better than Perfection”, gli Herakut dipingono quello che è il murale più grande in città non solo, vanno ad occupare il muro della zona finanziaria della città vero cuore pulsante dell’economia tedesca. Aldilà della rilevanza sociale il pezzo come sempre si distingue per le tematiche e per lo stile portato avanti dal duo, toni delicati e dolci che si mescolano con i muscoli di una tecnica iper realistica per dare vita ad opere sensibili e che sanno più di tutto toccare le corde più emotive dell’animo umano.
Sembra che il progetto si stia avviando verso la sua fase conclusiva con l’intenzione da parte degli artisti di concludere il tutto nella capitale Berlino, non aggiungiamo altro, piuttosto vi lasciamo in compagnia della ricchissima galleria dove potete apprezzare da vicino il lavoro e tutte le fasi di realizzazione di questa nuova incarnazione del libro firmato dagli Herakut, se invece volte approfondire QUI trovate tutte le precedenti pareti/pagine, enjoy it.

From August 22nd to 26th we were busy painting a 15 meter high facade in Downtown Frankfurt, Hera´s hometown. “THERE IS SOMETHING BETTER THAN PERFECTION” is the title of this mural, on the corner of Große Eschenheimer and Stiftstraße. During the press conference on Monday, organized by Corpus Sireo, who helped us secure this Frankfurt-wall for the Giant Storybook Project, we thanked the ones involved, like Strabag for giving us this nice boom lift, or like our dear friends from Montana-Cans for their tremendous support on every single stage of the Giant Storybook process, and we thanked the mayor of Frankfurt, Olaf Cunitz, for his patronage of our wall, because it needed some negotiation with other parties to get permission for this very prominent location in Germany´s finances capital. (It is the biggest piece of Street Art Frankfurt has seen so far! That is why it is so exciting for us. To leave a colorful and messy mark of this scale in an area that is dominated by clean-cut bank towers with their immaculate window facades, was a true honor. That is why we were honestly moved by the trust our collaboration partners had in us. Thanks, guys! Especially Katja! (Thanks, love, for putting yourself out there for us! Could not have done it without you!)

The artwork in Frankfurt might be our last or second-last mural of the first Giant Storybook package, because we need to start with the the actual book-making process. Maybe Berlin will be the final stop for us, which would be nice, as the first installation of Lily in her “hidden cave” was in Berlin, as well, when we worked inside the Kunstverein am Lützowplatz. Therefore: it might be nice to visit our friends again and leave them one big wall that is permanent …

We will let you know!
