Dabs Myla & Friends' "Marvelous Expeditions"

If you know Dabs Myla, it's easy to see why they have so many interesting friends — they're the sweetest people on earth, but they also have impeccable skills with a brush or spraycan and a wicked sense of humor. You'll see it in spades in their upcoming curated group exhibition at Thinkspace, "Marvelous Expeditions," which opens on Saturday, September 1st. Centered around a travel theme, it will incorporate work by all the friends they have made while journeying around the art world. Stay tuned for more updates as the show approaches!

And if you happen to be heading along Sunset Boulevard near the Chateau Marmont, keep an eye out for their new piece celebrating the ethos of Timothy Leary and the Merry Pranksters.

Andrew Hem in Phnom Penh

It is my pleasure to announce that Andrew Hem has been selected by the State Department's Art In Embassies division to be part of an exhibition at the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The curators have chosen three paintings which touch on aspects of Andrew's native Cambodia, including the ubiquitous presence of the spirit world, the devastating losses of the Khmer Rouge genocide, and the strength and perseverance of Cambodia's women. For the next three years, these paintings will be on view at official state functions in U.S. Ambassador William Todd's residence. I hope they will inspire contemplation and empathy towards the people of Cambodia.
