Olayami Dabls’ African Bead Gallery & Museum

Sunday, 22 June 2014

DABL'S 1

Thought this was an odd image until I found out that it’s a cool strange oddity. Dabl’s African Bead Gallery exists. In Detroit.

“Olayami Dabls–esteemed fine-artist, museum curator, and historian, has lectured extensively on African Material Culture to international audiences for over 30 years. As a curator, Dabls is a founding member of the African American Sports Hall of Fame, housed in the Wayne county building. He was also Artist-in-Residence at the Museum of African American History (1973-1982) as well as at the Detroit Psychiatric Institute (1985-1989). Dabls has served as Executive Director for the Rosa Parks Arts Center (1982-1984) as well as produced and hosted a radio program on WNEC4 (1978-1981).
In 1983 Dabls and his wife opened Dabls Perette’s Gallery, to great acclaim and the gallery has thus become known all over the African world. He has received numerous awards and has been featured in articles in every Detroit newspaper outlet.”

“I have a deep respect for anyone who is willing to put their face on a bus stop bench knowing what people do to them.  I thought it would be fun to do my own take on our local realtor advertisements.” –Phil Jones

Phil Jones’ “take” is to dress up as the people in the bus bench back adverts and replace their portraits with his own. Look closer:

Clever innocuous graffiti from Minneapolis, and there’s more at his website. Susan and Annie liked it, too.

Graffito Removal Graffito

Earlier this month, British stencil artist DS painted one of his signature characters, an old Hello Kitty spoof he’d long ago dubbed Bad Kitty, on an Islington wall along Essex Road. The next morning, the 28-year-old saw someone buffing the figures and photographed the removal process from across the street. Then DS stenciled the stranger’s portrait in the very same place.

Amusing, but it’s still vandalism of private property, even if you call it “street art.”
