About Sheryo & The Yok

SHERYO (Singapore/New York) is a visual artist from Singapore who started painting in the streets in 2005.
 In 2008 she started her travels and moved to Cambodia in 2011. Working from a home studio in the red light district of Phnom Penh, she delved deeper into her twisted world of exquisite lines and quirky mythology.

Her art seeks to investigate, analyze and document the human psyche and frustrations towards contemporary lifestyles and its mercurial nature. She works across mediums, from 2D paintings to 3D sculptures, installations and moving images.

She has exhibited and painted murals around the world and has recently been named Complex magazine’s “Top 10 street artists to watch in 2013 & 2014”, "10 Rising NY Street artists you should know", CBS NY’s “6 women street artists you should know” and Huffington Post's "Top 25 street artists shaking up public art".

Australian born artist THE YOK (Australia/New York) grew up fueled by Ren and Stimpy cartoons and skateboarding graphics which had a heavy influence on his style. After studying a bachelor of arts degree at Curtin University from 1997 - 1999, 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 Yok has been invited to many street art festivals around the world. The Yok has been voted by Complex Magazine, NY, Top 10 Street Artists to watch in 2013. His work has been featured in Scope NY and reviewed by the Huffington Post, Juxtapoz Magazine and Time Out Magazine.
