Artists THE YOK and SHERYO

THE YOK and SHERYO United States, New York

Sheryo is a brooklyn-based singaporean visual/mural artist who started painting in the streets in 2005. Her art seeks to investigate, analyze and document the human psyche and frustrations towards contemporary lifestyles and its mercurial nature. Her style, often referencing pulp illustrations, skateboard graphics and her unabashed affinity for kitsch, translate across as jovial, surreal imagery that speak to those who grew up admiring ’80s and ’90s skateboarding and surfing culture. Yok is an Australian born artist who grew up fueled by Ren and Stimpy cartoons and skateboarding graphics which had a heavy influence on his style. Yok had a yearning to see and do more elsewhere which saw him spend time and exhibit in places like Melbourne, Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai, New York, Tokyo and London. The duo has travelled, painted and exhibited extensively in various parts of the world together since 2011. In 2015 RABBIT EYE MOVEMENT invites them to Austria for an exhibition and some walls - one of which is at Mural Harbor Linz.
