DABSMYLA x MEXICO CITY x ADIDAS ORIGINALS

Last week we took a trip down to Mexico City to paint 3 murals on behalf of ADIDAS for the ALL CITY CANVAS festival.

The ALL CITY CANVAS festival is a huge public art event in Mexico City which has brought a great collection of some of the worlds best to town to paint some incredible murals, such as ROA, THE MAC, ESCIF, VHILS just to name a few.

The idea was..that we would go down there unannounced, and create 3 walls that would be unveiled at the opening party for the event. One of the walls was made up of over 500 small canvases and at the end of the party the guests would all leave with a small piece of the mural which was pretty crazy!

Because we where in the middle of preparing for our show at Known Gallery ‘BREAK NIGHT LOVERS’ we had to hustle. We spent 5 days there working from early in the morning until late in the evening to get the 3 walls finished in time to return to Los Angeles and start on the installation for our show. Although we spent most of our time painting in an abandoned Toy Factory, we had a great time there and got a nice taste of the local flavors in Mexico City…hopefully we will make it back sometime soon to see more of what the city has to offer!!

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.
