First and for most Yoke Art is about creating a family of artist.  Connecting artist of all shapes, sizes and colors giving artist from all corners of the world opportunities to collaborate on projects.  Being able to climb creative mountains and create something you couldn't do by your self. All of Yokes artist are passionate about what they produced, and believe “enjoy what you do.”


The “Anything and Everything Idea” is based on having creative thoughts and being able to execute that idea by, making everyone satisfied visually and on the same page conceptually.  People have crazy ideas, lucky we have crazy artist.

The idea behind the album art revolved around the band wanting the art to be based on objects that make up the world and time traveling.  Due to there new album “ Throne To The Wolves ” musically going in such a different direction, they wanted there image to do the same. 

The idea for the headdress works by the top half representing the riches of life.  Money, Vibrate colors and other exotic treats.  Then as the rest of the collection of objects cascades down in death and decay.

The sculpture was created by Thomson Moore and made from . . .
