My favorite part about social media is that it is fantastic for finding interesting people. Instagram has introduced me to so many interesting photographers and artists, one of which is DABSMYLA.
DABSMYLA is an Australian couple living in Los Angeles. I came across their Instagram account after they created the set for the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards. Ever since, I have religiously followed them and even got Jeff to (literally) buy into the obsession. Their style and meticulous attention to detail is truly remarkable.
Their latest installation Before & Further opened last weekend in LA and involved completely re-painting a stand-alone 1930 built Spanish Revival workplace building. The building is located on Modernica's factory property. Modernica creates furniture and worked with DABSMYLA to create some original pieces found in the installation.
Inside the incredible exhibition, you will find paintings, sculptures, and other fun stuff like a record player and a music bumping dark room filled with neon paint. In other words, there are hundreds of Instagram-worthy moments.
The majority of the works in the building were for sale and had already been SOLD before we go there, just over 24 hours after they opened.
Before and Further is open until November 15th. If you're in the area, it's definitely worth the trip. You can find more information here.
