ANIMAL’s feature Artist’s Notebook asks artists to show us their original idea sketch next to a finished piece. This week, street artists The Yok and Sheryo give us a behind-the-scenes look into their new piece at 5 Pointz.

The idea was inspired by our recent travels through Asia. The wall is part of a new body of work that will be on display at Krause Gallery on May 16th called “Pipe Dreams.” The piece took two full days to complete along with 25-30 cans of spray paint and 5 gallons of regular paint.
