In 2018, the dynamic duo The Yok and Sheryo, took on the CBH Group grain silos and referenced Albany’s pristine environment and sea-life with one very happy looking marine creature (and local resident), the ruby sea dragon. The artwork is a playful representation of the real animal, in-keeping with the urban aesthetic of both artists, which has been honed across a number of high-profile commissions around the world and countless walls sprayed for street art’s sake.
But the ruby sea dragon is one of many art stops in Western Australia’s southernmost port city. A cultural takeover began in April 2016 with urban artists from Europe, Tunisia, Australia and the States getting together with local talent to give buildings and alleyways around York Street a makeover as part of FORM’s annual PUBLIC festival of urban art.
