ABOUT | In 2011 Yessíca Torres co-opened H Gallery + Studios in Ventura, California. As co-owner and chief curator of H Gallery, Yessíca’s contemporary and modern program was a clear break from the conventional art scene that surrounded her. H Gallery’s progressive gallery design and ambitious exhibition schedule were received with immediate regional success. Her program made H Gallery one of the most prevailing contemporary art spaces in the greater Los Angeles area.

With the revelation that art exposure should not be limited by physical location, Yessíca independently established the Dab Art Company in 2014. This distinctive art company is dedicated to enhancing the contemporary art experience for artists, collectors and viewers in and outside the traditional gallery setting. Dab Art embraces the relentless evolution of contemporary art by featuring experimental artists, highlighting innovative techniques and utilizing technological advances. Mainly focusing on mid-career to established artists, Dab Art’s current inventory of international artwork is available for purchase online. Our partnership with Arsty has greatly expanded our collector visibility, elevating the Dab Art sales experience.

The Dab Art Co. headquarters and main Gallery are now located within the historic core of Downtown Los Angeles, in heart of the arts district and Gallery Row. Since it’s initial launch, Dab Art has expanded from standard gallery exhibitions to art publications, artist talks, panel discussions, video profiles, exhibition videos and now, documentary filmmaking; featuring our most remarkable and distinguished artists. The Dab Art Co. is now an international art company with 4 locations in California, Texas and Mexico City.
