Solo show in our project room this September based on their recent trip to Japan.

Los Angeles, CA - Thinkspace is pleased to present Siren, an exhibition of new works from Toronto, Ontario based artist Sarah Joncas, in what will be the artist's second solo exhibition with our gallery. Also showing concurrently in our project room will be Tokyo Deluxe, an exhibition of new works and an installation from Australian artistic duo Dabs Myla in what will be their first major solo exhibition following numerous group show appearances with our gallery.

Dabs Myla's new body of work is based on the overwhelming experiences the two artists had while visiting one of the most hectic cities in the world, Toyko. While creating a show about Tokyo is a bit like shooting a fish in a barrel due to all the visual stimuli found there, the couple took on the task and soaked up as much pop culture as their minds could take. Between taking photographs of the architecture and sketching up ideas wherever they went, Dabs Myla feel they have created a collection of paintings that reflects the stamp left on their brains from their trip to Tokyo. Our project room will be a virtual visual overload this September as the pair fill it with a wide array of new works layered on top of a full room mural and additional installation elements including die-cut figures, buildings, clouds, and more. 'Tokyo Deluxe' promises an immersive experience.


Dabs is a prolific illustrator and graffiti artist who spent his teenage years growing up in Melbourne in the Early '90s. The graffiti scene influenced him greatly in his style and technique. These days Dabs' characters come to life in more contextualized environments than ever before, whether they are painted on walls in the streets, or on canvases for a gallery setting.

Myla was also raised in Melbourne where she was obsessed with detailed painting and drawing from an early age. Throughout her life Myla has continued to develop her artistic ways, and now concentrates on detailed cities and landscapes. Three years ago, along with Dabs, they combined forces to solely collaborate on their works together.

The duo's work has shown the world over including such high profile shows as last November's 'Golden Age' show in downtown Los Angeles as well as the recent Green Day 21st Century Breakdown show that took place in the UK at Stolen Space and was curated by fellow artist Logan Hicks.

Dabs Myla currently live in Hollywood, Los Angeles, spending everyday working on artworks, painting walls and being influenced by the wonders of their new city.
