Originally from Perth and Vietnam, Yok & Sheryo have been travelling non stop this year, with their last stop being Miami for Basel. Check out below for a bunch of walls and paintings they recently did for Basel 2013.
In September 2013, Australian based creative group The Hours curated an exhibition at Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong’s Central and Western District. Titled ‘Neon Golden’, the exhibition featured new works on paper by a collective of world class contemporary, street and graffiti artists who all share a rich history of friendship and collaboration. A lot of the artists involved also travelled from all corners of the world to be in Hong Kong for the exhibition, and to paint as many walls as possible. This is what went down….

Kingbrown Issue 9, co-curated by The Hours has just landed in Singapore stores. To celebrate, Kult Gallery hosted the latest Kingbrown exhibition launch. A great night to meet local and international crew, plus cold beers, rad artworks, video games and plenty of magazines. The show is up until the end of the month, so if you’re in Singapore go visit the good guys at Kult. (pics by Farah Hannah)

Now that we’re all back and home in one piece, we’re going to slowly but surely recap our epic adventure to Hong Kong with some of Australia’s finest street, graffiti and low brow artists.
The main reason we were in HK was to curate a group show at Above Second gallery. We gathered artworks from a select group of Australian artists who are heavily involved in BOTH the outdoor mural scene and inside galleries. A broad group of talent that we thought best represent Australia’s diversity, whilst also pulling together a solid group of friends.
The show is still on. If you’re in Hong Kong, click here for details.
Stay tuned for more photos from the trip. Thanks to Kyle for the great photos. Click below for the full set.

Curated by Australian based creative group The Hours, ‘Neon Golden’ is an exhibition of new works on paper by a collective of world class contemporary, street and graffiti artists who all share a rich history of friendship and collaboration.
This group exhibition, presented by and located at Above Second Gallery in Hong Kong’s Central and Western District, is a celebration of new art movements in the Asia Pacific Region, and a showcase of these 14 artists’ diverse range of unique styles, subjects and techniques.
As well as the exhibition, this prolific group of artists will all be traveling from their current locations around the world to be in Hong Kong for a week long artist tour of the city, painting as many collaborative murals as possible with support from Ironlak.
FRIDAY 6TH SEPTEMBER 2013 7-10pm
Exhibition continues until Saturday 5th October 2013
In the low brow art world, some galleries stay, some go, some linger and grow old, but there’s one gallery in Melbourne that has stayed true and has always been at the forefront of the Melbourne gallery circuit. That’s No Vacancy.
The gallery, who’s main space is in the heart of the city, and also has two satellite spaces, has recently just celebrated their 5th birthday!
Featuring a stellar line up that was Meggs, Ghostpatrol, Ben Frost, Miso, Two One, Nior, Beastman, Makatron, Tom Vincent, Jasper Wong, Max Berry, Numskull, Adnate, Sheryo, Nails, Stephen Ives, Luke Lucas, and many many more (too many for me to re-type)… the show was packed full of both recent work and un seen old work that the artists contributed to a killer show. For us, we think there needs to be more of these group shows. Big celebrations of what’s happening right now in the young art world.
Thanks to the NV team for sending over the great photos (taken by Caitlin Muscat). Click below for the full set (there are ALOT of photos)…
The duo recently opened their show “Pipe Dreams” at Krause Gallery, New York. A unique body of work that was half created in New York and half created on their travels in Vietnam in various ceramic villages. Yok sent over a selection of photos that were taken by Zoe Beatwoman.
Yok and Sheryo have been busy traveling around Mexico painting a bunch of walls lately, and have since returned to New York, where they painted a large section of the famous 5 Pointz hall of fame (which is due to be demolished in the near future) in Queens. Check out a bunch of photos of the duo at work below and stay tuned for a video documenting the process. More info on Yok here and Sheryo here.
Global gypsy kids The Yok & Sheryo have been all over the place last year. They ended their year in Yok’s hometown of Perth and got up to some mischief whilst in town for the xmas season. Sand taggin, seagulls and bogans… More on Yok here. More on Sheryo here.
