Must read

CONTROL Gallery, Los Angeles // November 05, 2022 – December 03, 2022

DABSMYLA, the husband and wife duo from Australia that has called Los Angeles home for over a decade, have always been a burst of color. They have navigated through the art world, and to some extent, their own forays into the commercial world, with a cast of characters and landscapes that straddled the line of cartoons, graffiti and in many ways, a life of fantasy. And that is what makes their newest solo show, IN TECHNICOLOR,  on view at CONTROL Gallery this fall, so apt and perfectly in line with their best works: they have constantly presented us with a world of fantastical colors and personalities that are rich and textured and constantly evolving.

IN TECHNICOLOR will be our most personal show to date, a symbol of all the emotions we’ve experienced as artists throughout our lives, channeled through these unique characters that mean so much to us.” says the duo. Through these mid-century modern backdrops and spectrum of characters and colors, DABSMYLA feel freed in their newest work, creating a story that is both about their past and present. 

“We’re honored to be able to present DABSMYLA’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles since 2018,” says CONTROL Gallery founder Roger Gastman. “Their growth and journey as artists over the years has been exciting to witness on both a personal and professional level and we can’t wait to share all of the surprises we’ve lined up to mark this special moment.” 

What is apparent is IN TECHNICOLOR is right were DABSMYLA should be: bright, bold and full of imagination. —Evan Pricco
