Streets: Greg Simkins, Dabs & Myla and Jersey Joe Mural @ Static Medium

Yesterday, we tagged along with Greg “Craola” Simkins (featured), Dabs & Myla and Jersey Joe to watch them create a fresh mural christening the new location of Los Angeles print studio Static Medium. From 8am to the late afternoon, the artists took on the blazing sun with tons of spray cans using their crazy nozzle skills. They even got some love from the locals as they worked this urban beautification project. More pics after the jump…

Update: Dabs and Myla return to Australia

The duo of Dabs Myla have returned temporarily to their home country of Australia after a year long stay in Los Angeles.

Preview: Andy Kehoe – “The World Unseen and Those In Between” @ Thinkspace

As the last part of fall gives way to winter, Andy Kehoe gets set to open his show “The World Unseen and Those In Between” at Thinkspace Gallery. How appropriate – as Kehoe’s paintings have become synonymous with the autumn spirit, at least in our minds. His palette includes oranges, browns, and yellows with imagery including leaves, trees, and foliage of the season, as well as the strange creatures that inhabit his world. He opens along side Dabs Myla’s “Earthquake Weather” and Jesse Hotchkiss’ “Learning […]

More pictures after the jump.

Art Focus: Dabs and Myla

AM had the opportunity to sit down with the recently transplanted Australian duo of Dabs and Myla – a couple of artists that we’ve had our eye on for a while.  Their wondrously complex yet easily accessible paintings and murals are the result of years of collaboration as well as a seemingly near-psychic connection found only in the strongest of couples.  While Dabs creates the characters, Myla renders the washed out backgrounds and intricate cityscapes.  Their individual voices harmonize together with near symphonic results, the […]
