Albany Yok and Sheryo
Yok and Sheryo The Artist
The Yok (Australia) and Sheryo (Singapore) spent their formative years working as a duo between New York and South East Asia working as a duo, inspired by South East Asian culture, music, surfing and skateboarding. They call Brooklyn NYC home whenever they are not travelling and painting. These days, the duo leads a nomadic life painting around the world and looking for surf. They have painted several murals together in Perth.
Sheryo works across mediums, from 2D paintings to 3D sculptures, installations and moving images. Often referencing pulp illustrations, skateboard graphics and kitsch, her work translates across as jovial, surreal imagery that speaks to those who grew up admiring ’80s and ’90s skateboarding and surfing culture.
Yok is an Australian born-artist and Curtin University alumnus who grew up influenced by Ren and Stimpy cartoons and skateboarding graphics.
