His work has been included in exhibitions at The Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn, New York; Exit Art,
New York City; The Library of Congress, Washington, DC; and recently at ClampArt, New York City.
Yankus' artwork has graced the covers of books by Salman Rushdie, Philip Roth, and Alan Hollinghurst, among many others. His images have also been used for theatrical posters for such acclaimed Broadway shows as Jane Eyre; August Wilson's Ma Rainey's Black Bottom; and John Patrick Shanley's Pulitzer Prize winning play, Doubt.
