The Island of Yeahnahnesia brings together imagery and writing by widely travelled artists Yok and Sheryo to introduce a fantastic island culture to the world. In the creation of Yeahnahnesia, the artists draw on their individual cultural experiences and modes of creation and combine these to form a cohesive aesthetic that playfully connects world cultures in memorable and surprising ways. The result is the formation of a world where relaxation is central to existence; a value that Yok and Sheryo wish upon those who engage with their work and reflective of the balance they seek and enact in their own lives.
Presented in the form of a scientific journal, this beautiful 112-page hardcover publication includes photographs of Yeahnahnesia's temples and totems, detailed drawings and texts which bring to life the rich history, customs, culture, people and environment of Yeahnahnesia. It's a must for those who, like artists Yok & Sheryo, came to appreciate the island's philosophy of tops surf, double-pluggers, good beers, no fear, and devotion to peace, love and relaxation with a laidback party vibe.
