AKUT Studio Insights – “Masquerade” Location Berlin, Germany Photography @akut_herakut Profile @akut_herakut The pace of today’s society is often hard to keep up with. In a world filled with wannabes and ladder climbers, everyone is doing their bit to save face and play the role that is expected of them to get to where they want to go. 120 Studio Insight Akut

But is it where they need to be, or even who they really are? Even for kids, the value of a perfect selfie on social media now has more value than the actual content of their true personality. And what personalities do they even have, at least outside of their digital ones? The German artist Falk Lehmann aka AKUT has been observing this social condition with concern for the destination it is taking our society. For the exhibition “Réalités” at Galerie Mathgoth focussing on the work of hyper realistic artists, in January 2020, AKUT created the painting “MASQUERADE“. ↓ As if from another time still to come, AKUT’s rendition of the chrome face reminds us of science fiction films and robotic technologies. → Within every element of the human skin is a broad spectrum of color and tones. Making AKUT’s ability to convey them all in his art even more impressive. The 80 × 100cm work started its journey as a soft charcoal sketch on the canvas. The image of a girl, removing her face as a mask which doubles as that which society sees as her ‘real’ face. Studio Insight Akut 121
