Juxtapoz post interview with Paul Barnes

Paul Barnes 'Resting Place' - acrylic and plaster on canvas

I guess my closeness to nature and the slight isolation of growing up in the rural north of Scotland, along with my fascination of its ancient traditions rich in folklore and legend no doubt forms the basis of my work, no matter how much I try to escape it. It’s this inspiration, from a very early age, that fuels a big part of my imagination today. Resurrecting the creatures from my childhood memories, conscious of the innocence and naivety in the forms, I enjoy playing with them like I did as a child. I try hard to make my paintings look old, to recapture my visions with a feeling of timelessness and space, kind of like a dream or distant memory that has become all blurry and faded.– Paul Barnes

Dabs Myla at it again in downtown Los Angeles…

'Only Time Will Tell' mural with Dabs Myla (Australia), Askew and Deus (New Zealand), Vans (Australia), Skore (Germany), Rime, Revok and Witness

Australian duo Dabs Myla are at it again. After rocking the Long Live The Yellow Fin’ mural alongside Craola recently, they hooked up with Askew and Deus (New Zealand), Vans (Australia), Skore (Germany), Rime, Revok, and Witness for a really interesting concept wall in downtown Los Angeles.

Askew had the idea to paint a wall based on the phrase “Only Time Will Tell” with the running theme of the 4 seasons along the wall in order, with each season teamed with each word.

VANS / RIME/ WITNES: Winter, with VANS on letter detail painting the phrase “ONLY”
DABS / MYLA / SCORE: Spring, With SCORE on letter detail painting “TIME”
REVOK / RIME: Summer, REVOK on letter/background detail painting “WILL”
ASKEW / DEUS: Fall, ASKEW on letter detail painting “TELL”

The wall took two long days and nights to complete and came out super strong. Check out more pics of the wall coming to life here: www.flickr.com/photos/thinkspace/sets/72157625677136794/
