Japan never gets old in the eyes of western artists - and by Japan we mean everything from Hokusai to Astro Boy. Two people who obviously endorse (and embody) this enthusiasm are two Australians who collaborate under the galvanized name DabsMyla. Drawing on shared skills in both illustration and graffiti, they have fashioned Tokyo Deluxe. There in the background is the modern face of the Rising Sun; there in the foreground are two figures rising to the occasion with youthful and unabashed joy. These twain have succeeded in making the twain meet.
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.
