We just finished a profile on Hong Kong based collective, The Parent’s Parents. This video is part of our new platform of creative profiles, DOUGLYFE, that is focused on exposing the different creatives we meet as we travel, learn, and grow. Super talented and super humble. We Fucking love these guys and you will too;) Check it out…
We finally made it out to Miami this December. Corey Helford Gallery showed some of our fine artwork at SCOPE, and Charlotte Dutoit, who curated the Rise Above art program in Vegas earlier this year, invited us to do a large mural in Wynwood. Thank you! Below you can see photos of the madness- crazy fucking trip!

We are honored to be a part of a large project in downtown Detroit called The Z. The Library Street Collective invited over 20 international artists to the city to paint a massive parking garage. The group includes Kofie, Interesni Kazki, Reyes, Push, Maya Hayuk, Saner, Remi Rough, Revok, and How Nosm to name a few. You can see the detailed shots of the piece we did on our site, but here are some great shots from the trip compliments of Carlos Gonzales AKA theonepointeight who was along for the ride, documenting the journey. Big Thanks to JJ, Anthony, Matt, and the rest of the crew!!!
In “CAPTURE THE FLAG: HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS” we are dissecting the timeless struggle of nations. In this case we are looking at America through the mythology of the Cowboy and the Indian, a great duality within American history. The work embodies themes of liberation and inspiration. America itself is a work in progress. Our work is a reflection of the way we are pushing for a new world, and a society that thrives and feeds off of creativity and forward thinking. Progression through evolution. More specifically, we are redefining the concept of America and what it is to be an American. There is no I in the America we know- we spell it AMERYCA, suggesting cooperation over competition. “CAPTURE THE FLAG: HOME IS WHERE YOUR HEART IS” expresses the idea that life is not about where you’re home was, but where your heart is.
Our vision is to capture moments in history, with the hope that we can shed light on the future. Capture the flag is an opportunity for us to question our place in the world. Capturing the flag is freedom.
Thanks to all of our Hong Kong family who came out, and thanks to Above Second for hosting the show and making it all possible. May and Lauren, you are amazing! Love!!! The Dougs
The Dougs at HYPEBEAST just moved into a new Headquarters in Hong Kong. Somehow those assholes found out that we were in town, then begged us to paint their offices. We finally gave in when they offered us a million dollars in cash and free lap dances from their entire crew. They give really. Good. Lap dances. LOL, no no no, we were honored to paint something truly unique and powerful for their space. Special thanks to Kevin, Eugene, Arthur, and Silas. You guys really know how to make a man feel good inside. AHH :), ok this has turned into a weird post.
In our last post we talked a lot about the new mural we did here in LA. If you want to learn a little bit more about the piece you can check out a short doc that LA Canvas put together on the CYRCLE x WOODKID collaboration. Thanks again to Branded Arts for hooking us up with the wall.
Love! The Dougs
