The dynamic duo Herakut painted a new mural in Mannheim, Germany titled 'Brothers Helping Sisters Helping..."

This stretch of urban art lines the wall of a train track where visitors entering the city by train are able to view the creativity. City councils proposed an offer to the artistic partners to canvas the wall in the Gluckstein Quarter with a meaningful message.

The painting is comprised of a chain of 'brothers' and 'sisters' hugging one another from the back, forming a line of support and love; it's a simple and clear message of helping others. Herakut's style of art is sprinkled with urban touches that evoke both retro graffiti art and deep issues. This mural by Herakut is an example of intertwining social responsibility with artistry.
