Represented by Shea & Ziegler
Melbourne natives Dabs Myla relocated to Los Angeles in 2009. Dabs started painting graffiti in 1995, and began teaching Myla graffiti writing about ten years later, after meeting in art school where they became friends and eventually fell in love. Soon afterward, they decided they liked their collaborative pieces better than their individual work, and from that point on; they worked together exclusively, as Dabs Myla. Inspired by graffiti, travel and their wonderful chaotic life together as a couple, their paintings play Dabs’ mischievous and sometimes ribald characters off Myla’s photorealistic cityscapes.
"The artist installation we are creating for the Moniker Art Fair is going to be a little different from any of our past installations. We are working on giving the installation a lot of depth, playing with our usual aesthetic and ideas of creating a small wonderland of our imagination for people to visit and interact with. We really hope that we can create a unique experience for people, and give them the feeling like they are walking into one of our paintings by using more three-dimensional sculptural works. The installation will include a collection of colourful characters in the form of large cigarettes, an over sized cigarette pack, wood cut outs of clouds of smoke smiling over the viewers and a collection of furniture and found items, all hand painted."
Moniker International Art Fair opens on October 13th 2011 and will run until the 16th.
Its free entree and each day there are various events happening. DABSMYLA will be painting live on Saturday and on the Sunday will be doing a workshop inside the fair.
