A new exhibition entitled Loving the Exiled, by the German artistic duo, Herakut, will open this Saturday in San Francisco at 941 Geary. Herakut is interested in continuing a dialogue between the highs and lows of human nature. They primarily depict people and animals within their work in a way that tells a story through symbolism. See photos of the duo painting in preparation for this show after the jump.

We recently viewed impressive new gallery works by Herakut (Vol 17 ) at ‘Hybrid Thinking’ at Jonathan LeVine Gallery last month in NYC (covered here and here) so we were happy to see they were still exploring their public art as well. Recently correspondent Daniel Rolnik captured some images of a mural they painted back in November in downtown LA right outside The Do Lab’s studio. View more images after the jump.

Last week, from February 9th through 14th, artists from all over the world gathered once again in Honolulu for the 5th annual Pow! Wow! Hawaii mural festival. This year’s festival was the biggest to date, with 42 visiting artists and 39 local artists all busting out walls in Kaka’ako (the festival hub) and around the city. The week was a convergence of varying cultures and artistic styles, resulting in many exciting collaborations —some planned and others spontaneous.

The Wynwood neighborhood in Miami is the street art nexus during Basel Week. The urban art event The Wynwood Walls transforms the area into a huge canvas for some of today’s most well-known street artists. While there is an officially sanctioned courtyard that houses the work of Miss Van, Kenny Scharf, Olek, Shepard Fairy, Ron English, Vhils and others, a copious amount of murals pop up on the surrounding blocks. We spotted Nychos’s dissected creatures, rainbow-hued photorealist portraits by Kobra, a huge piece by Herakut, the monochromatic, mischievous characters of The London Police and much more. Take a look at some street art highlights after the jump.
