DABSMYLA x CRAOLA……Long Live The Yellow Fin!!

One of our favourite people to paint walls with has got to be Greg CRAOLA Simkins!
When ever we all paint together we just have such a great time..and usually come out with a really interesting end result!
For a while now we have been talking with Greg about trying out a character wall where we used spray paint..but also tried out adding acrylic paint and brush work.
Myself and Greg are from a pretty similar era in Graffiti, both starting in the early to mid 90’s.(Greg maybe a little earlier!)
And even though Greg is from LA and we where in Melbourne, there was definately the same vibe that Graffiti writers dont use brushes!
It was always viewed as bad form, so its something that none of us have ever really tried.
But its a new millenium now…and rules dont apply!
It was really great to take a lot of elements that the 3 of us would use in graffiti with spray paint..but then balance that out with the elements that we all use in our paintings with brushes.
Really happy with the outcome….hope to do a lot more of it in the future.
Big thanks to the LA Freewalls Project for hooking us up with a super smooth spot in Downtown LA!

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 LA for the past 2 years, soaking up the sun and chaos that surrounds us.
