Justin Favela in Conversation


by LuisDa Molina Rueda


It was around 3PM when I asked Artist-in-Residence Justin Favela to join me in the little terrace at SPACE. After stating that he loves overpaying for food (probably sarcastically), the chilly summer weather in Maine and the support for the arts in Portland, we dove into a conversation about life and work. Justin Favela is a Las Vegas native working in the mediums of painting, sculpture, and performance. His work draws from art history, popular culture, and his Guatemalan/Mexican heritage. His exhibition, Pólvora, will open at SPACE on July 6th.
