Road Trip

This artwork is called Road Trip and shows a whole cast of unsavory characters from the Brooklyn Neighborhood on a very long motorcycle on a road trip to tropical Mexico. We have some cockroaches, rats, pizza guy, hot dog dude, shrimpy the lobster, and even a tube of toothpaste that escaped the trash can on the epic Road Trip to paradise.

Yok & Sheryo

Yok & Sheryoʼs artwork is symbiotic with their life of travel and adventure.

Their art exists in “Yeahnahnesia,” a fictional tropical island with rich, made-up tales of mythology, deities, philosophies, religion, animals and landscapes and a ton of archaeological treasures yet to be found.

They weave their unique brand of cultural syncretism into irreverent, riotous, mixed-media paintings, murals and sculptures. Most recently, they have been creating frivolous “temples” and “shrines” that provide humorous commentaries on society's mercurial lifestyles

“Yok is originally from Perth and started painting in 1999. He was a key figure in the Perth graffiti and street art scene and helped propel the stylistic traits from graffiti into the context of graphic design and art institutions.

Sheryo is originally from Singapore, with an artistic background in illustration and design. She began painting murals in 2004 and was one of the first globally successful female street artists from Singapore. She then moved to Cambodia, which is where she and Yok first met. He was on a trip to Indonesia and missed his flight back to Australia. A mutual friend who was living in Cambodia introduced them and they painted their first mural together in 2011.

“When they first met in 2011, Yok and Sheryo’s artistic styles were polar opposites. Yok preferred minimalist line drawings while Sheryo spearheaded a loose approach to illustrating characters. As they’ve tackled more and more projects over the years together, they’ve developed a shared visual language that celebrates the wild handstyles of graffiti. Cartoonish figurations can be observed across their demonic cast of characters -- with an aesthetic that merges Yok and Sheryo’s personal experiences growing up in Australia and Singapore, respectively.
