Artist duo DABSMYLA staged their most ambitious exhibition ever in the fall of 2015. Their installation takeover of a 4,000 square foot building in Los Angeles will go down in history. The building, a workplace on the site of the storied Modernica furniture facility, was fully transformed as DABSMYLA lavished 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, each and every element was designed and created exclusively for duo’s collaboration with Modernica, fully utilizing the factory’s extensive technical capabilities. Before and Further is inspired by the the individual life experiences of DABSMYLA, and explores their mystical union and shared balance of love, creativity, friendship and sexuality. The significance of two becoming one is most essential to DABSMYLA, in their work and even more importantly in their role as husband and wife. This edition is limited to 2,500 copies and features a 16 page section of drawings and sketches made in preparation for the exhibition.
ABOUT Dabs Myla:
A lot of the time when we explain to people what we do and how we work they say..."Man..you work together, and you are a couple! I'd end up killing my girlfriend/boyfriend if we collaborated on everything we did!" I guess we are pretty lucky...two peas in a pod!
Two crazy, work-a-holic, mad dorks in a pod!
After years of living, painting walls and working together we have only become closer, stronger and even more in sync. Every day we wake up, paint all day...and keep each other entertained with constant chatter and stupid jokes. Who could ask for more out of life!!
We are both originally from Melbourne Australia, and have been living and working in Los Angeles for the past four years, soaking up the sun and chaos that surrounds us.
