#11 Dabs & Myla: 12 Wishes for 2012

For twelve days we’re presenting twelve wishes for 2012 as told by an alternating roster of artists and BSA readers, in no particular order. Together, they are a tiny snapshot of the people who are part of the street art scene around the world today. Individually, each adds their personal expression of hope for tomorrow.

Today’s wish is courtesy of Melbourne Street Art couple Dabs & Myla, whose unrelentingly upbeat and colorful illustrations of cheerful unicorns, breasts and penises have somehow evaded the public art prudes in many cities this year, including LA and Miami.  Serious fans of calligraphy, retro signage, graphic design and all kinds of graffiti, the sunny optimism that punctuates every stroke makes every thing D&M touches – from warehouses to Waring blenders, a hit. As things continue to point upward, the duo has this wish for themselves in the new year;

“Our wish for 2012 is for us to both enjoy each day as much as we have for the past 5 years together, keep pushing ourselves as artists and to keep painting on as much of the world that we possibly can.”
