A coffee with Edward Hopper

 Nighthawks is a 1942 painting by American realist painter Edward Hopper that portrays people sitting in a downtown diner late at night. It is Hopper’s most famous work and is one of the most recognizable paintings in American Art. Within months of its completion, it was sold to the  Art Institute of Chicago for $3,000, and has remained there ever since. Paintings such as Nighthawks convey a mood of loneliness and desolation by their emptiness or by the presence of anonymous, non-communicating figures. Personally, this is our favorite painting ever.

Artistic illusions by Herakut

Hera and Akut are two german artist. The couple have been operating under the name of Herakut since 2004 when they began producing collaborative pieces in the burgeoning street art scene.  The visual and textual content of their work is an insightful expression of their generation’s mental state. Herakut’s earth tones are layered upon each other, creating images that blend in with the environment around them. Though it’s not just in palette through which the work presents an interest in nature. The people and animals that stand at the center of Herakut’s pieces are created as a commentary on human nature, on the ups and downs of all the small wars we fight within ourselves.
