Pen & Paper: Dabs Myla
A pair of talented Australian artists who just happen to be a couple, Dabs Myla have been living and working in LA for the past three years. Their paint-based work is often playful and colorful, conjuring up images and memories from one’s childhood even while subverting them with mischievous and bawdy elements. Inspired by graffiti, food, travel, a shared love for illustration, and urbanity, the art of Dabs Myla formally combines narrative illustration, photorealistic drawing and architectural renderings against a backdrop of imagined cityscapes. The cohesive duo has been exhibited at galleries such as Thinkspace Art Gallery in California and continue — deservedly — to receive commercial and critical acclaim from a growing legion of fans.
