Sheryo was born in Singapore and is now based in Brooklyn, New York. Her art seeks to investigate, analyse and document the human psyche, and vent her frustration with contemporary lifestyle choices and its mercurial nature. She works in many mediums, including 2-D painting, 3D sculptures, installations, and moving images. Her style, often referencing pulp illustrations, skateboard graphics, and her unabashed affinity for kitsch, translates as jovial, surreal imagery that speaks to those who grew up admiring 1980s and 1990s skateboarding and surfing culture. Sheryo was part of Jeff Deitch’s Women on the Walls 2013and Coney Island Art Walls 2015. She has exhibited and painted murals around the world with Yok.
Yok is an Australian-born artist who grew up fuelled by cartoons of The Ren & Stimpy Show and skateboarding graphics, both of which had a strong influence on his style. After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree at Curtin University in 1999, Yok had a yearning to see and do more elsewhere. He travelled and exhibited his work in Melbourne, Sydney, Bangkok, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Shanghai, New York, Tokyo, and London. Yok has been invited to numerous Street Art festivals worldwide, notably in Miami’s, Art Basel 2014 and 2015. In collaboration with Sheryo, the duo has had two successful shows at the Krause Gallery in New York.
