From the wilds of Penang, where the psychotropic art duo Yok & Sheryo are living, comes this new print – which was also released as an animated NFT. “An ode to the beautiful tropical paradise lifestyle that The Yok and I have been living for the past 2 years,” says Sheryo, and you can see the relaxed mirth and trouble-making that normally accompanies their characters. “Sooooo here it is,” says The Yok, “our ‘gм ραяα∂ιѕє’”.
Done in collaboration with @cultprint, each is signed, and the APs are hand-embellished with gold leaf.
Lithuanian born street artist and fine artist Ernest Zacharevic has been living in Penang for a while now and entertains himself in studio when he’s not launching enormous outdoor interventions. Without boundaries, the mind is free to conjure and consider, even stare at the sky atop your favorite animal friend.
Ernest is in his early 30s but we can’t help think that sometimes his painted children are at least one-part inspired by his inner life as a child. Taking a fun poke at the cattle crossing signs he sees in the countryside of Malaysia, the artist has created this young kid searching the sky. In all probability it’s a sign that he’s discovered up there in the sky, or in the tree, or on the telephone wire.
This new print is the richest, thick cotton paper stock we’ve run into in a while and he’s now released a series of 180.
