We're excited to announce AKUT, a street artist and photographer based in Berlin, Germany, is now available in our shop!

Falk Lehmann aka AKUT has been active in the graffiti and street art scene for more than 25 years. He began his career in graffiti focusing on photorealism as a founding member of the Ma’Claim crew in 2001. In 2004 he joined artist Jasmin Siddiqui aka Hera to form Herakut. As part of this duo AKUT maintains his photorealistic style but transitioned from graffiti to street art and gallery exhibitions.
