“Dabs Myla’s ‘The Best of Times’ was like stepping into a twisted colorful wonderland – think that Disney version of ‘Sword in the Stone’ where the teacups and such come to life at Merlin’s… meets the psychedelic part of Dumbo… and then make it all a little less PG.”– NOTCOT.com
“Street Art Saved My Life isn’t just street art in a gallery — Harrington and Rojo asked artists to play off of their street art to contribute fine art works that use a variety of mediums and work in the no-context space of a gallery. This yielded a surprisingly thoughtful and earnest outcome: in an artistic culture known for its focus on anarchic self-expression, it is surprising to see that so many pieces in the exhibit comment on serious social issues in an immediate way.” – LA Weekly
”In the spotlight created by MOCA’s ‘Art in the Streets’, many galleries have offered group shows in LA promoting different visions of what is purported to be ‘quality’ or even ‘the best’ street art. Unlike many pretenders that have come before it, ‘Street Art Saved My Life’ is the real deal and definitely worth a visit.” – DailyDujour.com
“The show is an interesting concept and definitely serves as one of the more thought out ones from recent memory. 39 (mostly NYC) artists have been selected by BSA for their consistent use of narratives in their work; artists who utilize the streets as a forum for their stories and storytelling are the focus. The inclusion of both established and emerging artists, along with the intriguing concept, make this more than your standard street art show and it looks to be a great alternative view of the scene.” – HiFructose.com
“The show was meant to display the current street art scene that’s taking place across New York and the surrounding areas. Although not all artists were born in that region, all of them have left their stamp on the East Coast street art scene one way or another and this exhibit was meant to show this in the best light possible. Although it can be difficult to feature a wide group of artists during one exhibit, the surrounding theme held the show in place. A great majority of the art focused on the New York experience but it also helped illuminate personal stories that touched more on the topic of family, friendships, and politics. Overall, the show featured a great collection of artists and various styles, so for anyone looking for a peek into the current street art movement happening in the East Coast, make sure you stop by before it closes on September 4th.” – ArrestedMotion.com
DABS and MYLA have been at it non-stop for months now and we’re about to share with you all the fruits of their labor as we present ‘The Best Of Times’ – coming August 13th to Thinkspace – new paintings – new drawings – murals – installations – the release of a new print & more! You don’t want to miss this one.
Thank you to everyone that braved ‘carmageddon’ earlier this month for the opening of Tran Nguyen and David Bray‘s new exhibits. We had a nice and full house throughout the evening and both artists thoroughly enjoyed themselves with their new works being very well received. It was great to see the showing of support across the board with several local artists out including the likes of Nathan DeYoung, Mia, DABS and MYLA, Ewelina Ferusso, Ana Bagayan, Melissa Haslam, Euth, and Jason Shawn Alexander.
So pumped to report that DABS MYLA are featured in the pages of the new issue of the UK’s VNA (Very Nearly Almost). By far one of the most respected magazines reporting on the street art movement, it’s an honor that they’ve recognized the talents of these two amazing Aussies.
The duo are just on a roll currently as they prepare to open ‘The Best Of Times’ – coming August 13th to Thinkspace – new paintings – new drawings – murals – installations – a new print – mark your calendars now!
