About Yok & Sheryo
Yok & Sheryo are an artist couple based between New York, Australia and Asia. Sheryo grew up in Singapore and began her acclaimed mural practice in 2005. One of the first female painters involved in the street art and graffiti scene in Singapore, in 2013 Jeffrey Deitch included her work alongside other OG female painters like lady pink, faith47, miss van in a show at Wynwood Walls, Miami. Yok is originally from Perth; being fuelled by isolation Yok had to make his own fun, and get creative to entertain himself. This helped form his passion for creating new worlds in which he could escape. The two artists have created together since 2011 and have earned a unique place in the international art world.
Fed by their curious natures and extensive travel, their playfully hybrid, freewheeling work has appeared on walls and in galleries around the globe, as well as in collaboration with companies such as Google, Nike, Adidas, Vans, Converse, Hypebeast, and Billionaire Boys Club.
Soaking up influences and ideas as they move, their works collapse traditional forms and contemporary modes of art, craft and design to populate a fictional tropical land called “Yeahnahnesia”, a place filled with its own eccentric Gods, myths, shrines, temples and creatures.
