Read more about our special guests below:


This Melbournian expat duo is the talk of the Australian art scene, following a string of successful graffiti shows locally and abroad. Their relocation to LA has exposed their work to the US market and allowed the DABS MYLA brand to gain worldwide traction. Their distinctive, cartoon-flavoured artwork is gracing everything from streets to magazine covers and gallery walls. Dabs and Myla share their experience with a forum audience for the first time at Carbon.

Lawrence Schlossman

Now at the helm of the newly formed, rapidly successful menswear website Four Pins, part of the Complex Network, Lawrence’s satirical approach to his field of expertise has won him a loyal, expansive online following. Lawrence is also co-creator of the blog site Fuck Yeah Menswear and co-author of the book of the same name.

Mark Drew

Mark Drew began his hustle in the world of design via a self-published, photocopied hip-hop zine in Sydney during the nineties. After establishing his status as a graphic artist, Mark co-founded the iconic Surry Hills gallery China Heights with Ed Woodley in 2004 before relocating to Tokyo in 2009. Mark’s artworks have become highly coveted collector pieces, referencing ’90s hip-hop iconography and pop culture. His designs have graced album artwork, apparel and, of course gallery walls. He has been featured in ad campaigns for Sony, Nike and New Era.
