Meet two more of the world-famous street artists painting the School during Art Basel.
Sheryo & The Yok painted the inside of Miami Ad School in New York. Now their signature red, white and black creatures are coming to Miami.
"In the lobby at Miami Ad School's New York location the pair painted a giant slice of pizza that's wearing a mask and riding a bicycle. Their crazy creatures and details make me smile. The slice of pizza's shirt (of course their pizza would wear a shirt) has a pattern of little flamingos, a wink to the school's mascot. I can't wait to see what they'll create in Miami during Art Basel!" - Pippa Seichrist, Cofounder, Head of Innovation & Development, Miami Ad School
The Yok, grew up in Perth, Australia, where he completed a Bachelor of Arts Degree and helped pioneer the Perth street art movement before moving to Africa and South East Asia to explore idea’s and new cultures. These travels and explorations have had a long lasting effect on his work. In addition to being accomplished with the spray paint medium, he also delivers a sophisticated illustration style to his canvas work.
Sheryo hails from Singapore and started painting in the streets in 2005. During her formative years, she developed a distinctive style and subsequently emerged as one of Singapore’s top street artists. 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.
Sheryo & The Yok's new wall will be unveiled on December 5th at the Soak Up Party. You're invited. Please RSVP.
