Sheryo Draws in Black and White

Illustration // Wednesday, April 09, 2014
Sheryo is a Brooklyn based artist from Singapore who paints imperfect gnarly characters that are calming to disoriented souls, and might cause skitter skatter explosions in the brain. She has exhibited and painted in LA, Seoul, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Cambodia, Mexico, Australia and Vietnam since 2008.
