If you're looking for a way to lift your spirits before all the holiday madness hits, we've got JUST the thing—an NYC art exhibition featuring Hello Kitty! The "Hello Kitty, Hello Art!" pop-up, which runs all weekend long at the Openhouse Gallery, features some of our favorite designers (like Betsey Johnson and Paul Frank) and artists (like Dabs Myla and Tokidoki's Simone Legno) showcasing their take on the oh-so-lovable Sanrio characters. Last night we stopped by the launch party to peep all the goodness, and, boy, we were hit with some serious surprises. First off, Betsey Johnson herself made an appearance and took some killer pics next to her artwork (peep one after the jump!), and we also got to chat up the L.A.-via-Australia art duo Dabs Myla to get ALL the deets behind their collection. (You might remember their graffiti work from the Drew Barrymore-directed "Our Deal" supervideo featuring Chloe Moretz.) Check out what the twosome, who, yes, are actually named Dabs and Myla, had to say about their Hello Kitty collab below! (And please note how adorably they finish each others sentences.)
