‘Christmas Mural 2011’ with Dabs Myla

Just before the big Christmas weekend this past year Dabs Myla took over Culver City with a massive new mural set up via Branded Arts and Thinkspace at the intersection of Washington and National. The mural itself isn’t just something cool to look at, there is a very moving and real story that is told with this new mural. Filmmaker Carlos Gonzalez documented the project and his resulting footage is just so uplifting. The final edit is a thing of beauty.

DABS MYLA meet The Canmans – in stores now

The Canmans are a series of vinyl figures focused on graffiti artists and the art of collecting spray paint cans. There are 2 editions of the Canmans, the Artist Editions and the Blank Editions. The Artist Edition features limited edition Canmans that have been designed by some of the world’s most prolific graffiti artists. The artist edition series for The Canmans are based on vintage spray paint cans that were once widely used and are now long gone but fondly remembered.

DABS MYLA‘s Canman pays homage to this concept. They have chosen a well known vintage Australian paint can, and have added their flavor over it.

Other artists in the 1st series include Revok, Greg ‘Craola’ Simkins and Pose. Each Canman is limited to 500 pieces worldwide.
