It’s been a pleasure getting to know this artistic super duo over the past seven years, and I’ve just plain been impressed with them as people—and not just for their koala-jitsu skills. We recently sat down in my studio to catch up and got to talking about everything from the sets they’re designing for the MTV Movie Awards to traveling the world painting large-scale murals. I really can’t thank Dabs and Myla enough for saving me that day.

Jonathan LeVine Gallery is pleased to present Cruel Summer, a group exhibition curated by collector, graffiti historian, Juxtappoz contributor, and urban anthropologist Roger Gastman. "The summer of 1984 was awesome. The space shuttle Discovery took off on its maiden voyage, Apple released the Macintosh personal computer, the Olympics rallied the world together and Karate Kid was the hit film featuring the song Cruel Summer by Bananarama. The song and its video of three gorgeous young women roaming the streets of New York City inspired this show."
