German artist duo Herakut have recently created a new series of artworks that narrate universal struggles through poignant portraits of children. Adorned in elaborate headdresses, the children resemble ancient hunters wearing animal skins or perhaps simply animal-human hybrids. Merging text, abstraction and figurative portraits, these works take on a storybook-like format as one must read the text to understand the individual identity of each subject. Herakut displayed these works in their February show at Metro Gallery in Melbourne, Australia. Take a look at some of their new artworks below.
