WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERA?

Vertical Gallery is pleased to present a special exhibition “WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERA?” with Hera of Herakut, Jasmin Siddiqui. The exhibition is July 2 – 30, 2016 with an opening reception with the artist Saturday, July 2, 6-10pm.

Jasmin Siddiqui was born in Frankfurt, Germany in 1981. She has a classic art education that started at the age of eight. She later studied Visual Communication and Graphic Design at the University of Applied Sciences in Wiesbaden. She combines her skills as a graffiti artist, illustrator, poet and storyteller to create fluid figures with simultaneously elegant and chaotic line and brushstrokes. Her work is often a statement on the human condition and experiences of childhood.

In 2004, Jasmin joined forces with Akut (Falk Lehmann) and began creating collaborative work under the name of Herakut. The duo has exhibited in galleries and art fairs worldwide; they have created over 40 public murals; published two successful books; and are in major collections around the world.

This is Hera’s first solo exhibition in 8 years.
