Dubbing themselves “professional spraycationers,” Yok & Sheryo inject pops of cartoon joy into everyday life. Their Fruit and Vegetables La-la land in Singapore is an explosive example of what happens when the pair can run wild, tapping both their inner-children and actual youth from the area to make the creations. Their work can also be seen on public walls across the world, and on Instagram—documenting their adventures under the moniker “spacecandy.” They were last featured on here.
The Yok & Sheryo are a New York-based artist duo whose busy, illustrative murals can be found on walls world-over, from Hong Kong to Miami. Most recently spotted at the street art festival Pow! Wow! Taiwan (see our coverage here), the frequent collaborators have developed a signature style that contrasts an austere palette of red, white and black with jovial, surreal imagery — sentient hot dogs on a tropical vacation, a surfing Satan that seems as friendly as Santa Claus, et cetera. The artists' frequently-used motifs, like pizza and palm trees, reference pulp illustrations, skateboard graphics and their unabashed affinity for kitsch. They bring together a frenzied array of imagery that speaks to those who grew up admiring '80s and '90s skateboarding and surfing culture.
