Drifting high above the city and standing sentry over the sound, Brooklyn-based
street art duo Yok & Sheryo
have created a soaring new seadragon on grain silos in Albany.
Morphing two of the most extraordinary creatures of the ocean, both rare and exclusive to the coastal waters of south- western Australia, Albany’s seadragon has the bright red hue of the Ruby seadragon and the gossamer tendrils of its Leafy cousin.
She’s come to life in red, gold and grey. She has a home in the heart of the Great Southern. Now she just needs a name...

FORM’s PUBLIC Silo Trail is putting regional Western Australia up in lights, bringing world class murals to grain silos, transformer boxes and iconic infrastructure in unexpected towns right across the state.
This is the fourth giant mural by famous street artists to pop up on grain silos across Western Australia as part of the PUBLIC Silo Trail, a creative project by FORM celebrating the state’s regions. The project will ultimately create a trail drawing visitors to regional WA, raising its profile and boosting cultural tourism.
As part of this trail, story gathering and social documentary project Homegrown Stories
will offer a new way of knowing the life and stories of the people behind the state’s regional towns and agricultural networks. Where will the trail take you? Stay tuned here for the announcement of the final silos in the trail. Coming soon!
