TAHITI ONO’U FESTIVAL

We are really looking forward to the ONO’U festival this May in Tahiti.

Ourselves and 14 other artists will be traveling there to paint some big walls, and there will also be a Graffiti Competition with over 40 artists from all over the world competing.

In lead up to the festival, we just recently painted a Tahitian Themed wall.

Thanks so much to Kingston and Silver Light Studios for all their help and the great flicks!

The name of the festival, “ONO’U”, is inspired by the fusion of two Tahitian words “ONO” (the act of joining one thing to another) and “U” (colors) to express the act of joining a color to another and, by extension, to symbolize “the meeting of colors” in Tahiti through the art of graffiti.

The festival primarily aims to become a major international rendez-vous for urban contemporary art located in the heart of the South Pacific Ocean.

For its first edition, ONO’U will gather over forty international graffiti writers coming from around world (France, England, Australia, Chile, Denmark, USA, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand…) alongside local graffiti writers.

Among this group of artists, some of today’s living legends of the graffiti worldwide scene will be especially traveling to the mythical island of Tahiti to create amazing wall murals and unique frescoes.

For this week-long celebration of graffiti art, colors and creativity, over 1500 sqm of walls will be installed and painted by day and by night on the iconic site of Place Toata, facing the harbor of Papeete and magical island of Moorea.

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.
