ABOUT DAB ART | As the co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery (Est. 2011), Yessíca Torres's contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. Yessíca independently established Dab Art in 2014. This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers. Dab Art has expanded to 3 locations between Malibu and Ojai. Presenting gallery exhibitions, public art features, art publications, artist talks, panel discussions, video profiles, exhibition videos and now, documentary filmmaking. All featuring our most remarkable and distinguished artists.
Focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s multi genre inventory of international artwork is available in gallery and online for purchase. Dab art is a partner gallery of Artsy, an internationally recognized curated art market platform. Used by instituitions such as Musée Du Louvre and the J.
