For their most ambitious exhibition to date – artist duo DABS MYLA presents Before and Further, a 4,000 square foot installation takeover of a stand-alone 1930 built Spanish Revival workplace building, located on the Modernica factory property. DABS MYLA have fully transformed its interior and exterior with their newest paintings, sculptures, installations and exclusive furnishings from limited-edition fiberglass shell chairs and hand painted ceramics to custom-built lighting installations, all designed and created exclusively for their collaboration with Modernica utilizing the factory’s extensive technical capabilities.
The already rich history of this building and Modernica create a fitting compliment for DABS MYLA’s spectacular experience. This long awaited solo show will be the follow up to their tremendous work in designing the logo and set of the 2015 MTV Movie Awards. This exhibition closes their already very busy year, which includes an enormous private showcase in New York City and having painted numerous murals worldwide.
‘Before and Further’ is inspired by the individual life experiences of DABS MYLA – experiences that ultimately resulted in bringing the two artists together and explores their mystical union and shared balance of love, creativity, friendship and sexuality. The significance of two becoming one is most essential to DABS MYLA, in their work and more importantly in their role as husband and wife. Their artistic singularity is evident though the distinguished back-and- forth process of painting they equally share. Before and Further recalls their unseen journey of experience, the shared creative energy they’ve embraced and their cosmic consciousness of togetherness. This installation exemplifies DABS MYLA’s adventures in modern living and artistic partnership with a bit of psychedelic experimentation.
Look for details to be shared soon on the public reception to be hosted by Andrew & Shawn Hosner.

Dabs Myla have been dominating the art scene in the states since they first landed here back in 2009. Having worked with them since those early days, it’s been exciting to watch this duo grow. Now they’ve gone from Melbourn to MTV! The two of them have been hard at work creating a sick set for the MTV Movie Awards, and the Instagram teasers alone have us setting our DVR. Find out what inspired the new MTV Movie Awards logo design on MTV.com, and tune in April 12 8/9c to see what a Dabs Myla movie award show makeover looks like.

DABS MYLA recently gifted their second mural to the city of Culver City, this time with their friend MURO from the Canary Islands. The new mural is located just west of their other mural in Culver City (just up the road from Royal-T). This piece is also located within the Branded Arts compound alongside other murals from the likes of Herakut, Crycle, Andrew Hem, David Flores and Anthony Lister.
