Thursday night saw the launch of onethirty3's latest exhibition, featuring the artwork of German duo Herakut. onethirty3 is an Artists Installation Space within Hoult's yard, hosting artists to create site-specific art installations.
Herakut is the combined name of Hera and Akut. The partners work together on the paintings, using paints and spray to make figurative works of bold colour with photoreal elements.
It was a great night in Hoults Yard, Newcastle's most exciting hub for creative businesses. The yard contains over 50 business' including: artists, photographers, software developers, fashion designers, film editors, TV producers and more.
The work by Herakut covered the walls of onethirty3's space. The room was filled with local art lovers all eager to see the work and mingle with likeminded creatives.
The exhibition space itself is connected to resident artist 'Hush's studio, his work is quickly gaining recognition and his prints are rising in popularity and price. Work of his can be found in the alcoves of the adjoining room.
The yard also houses Unit-44, which doubles as a base for a design and photography team and Gallery space for international artists. Unit-44 host the ongoing White Walls project, which has transformed the former industrial yard, into a bright and engaging display of the best of today's current and emerging underground artists.
