Yok & Sheryo, Shadows

Yok & Sheryo render their surf/skate-inspired street art aesthetic in apocalyptic monochrome...

Papua New Guinea; Indonesia; Australia; New York. Art couple Yok & Sheryo have more fun than you. With influences rooted in ’80s and ’90s surfing and skating culture, Singaporean Sheryo and Australian Yok are back in their adopted home of Brooklyn with another riotous collection of pop culture infused art — heavily inspired by their extravagant travels. The totem-ography that speaks so much of surf culture is evident here; fused with the nihilism of skate. Yok & Sheryo’s Shadows shades in the gap between Suicidal Tendencies and wiped out tropical island surfers; there’s a cultural dissemination here that only creatives as well-travelled as these could achieve.

Tattoo flash-style prints accompany a series of sculptures from the dark side — sculptures that echo Ren & Stimpy for the doom generation; their unique international aesthetic channeled in monochrome — haunting, but still riddled with fun and irreverence. Yok & Sheryo’s Shadows continues at Masters Projects, Brooklyn, until 1 January, 2016.
