Chop Shop

2015. Alios Inc., Las Vegas, NV

"Latino pop culture went for a cross-country joy ride and came back. Another piece sat in the Clark County Rotunda. Now the cardboard and paper parts from those works by Justin Favela were culled to make new pieces, like small-scale low riders in colors like baby blues and flamingo pinks, and mini Selena signatures dipped in glitter. 

Large sections were properly displayed on the wall, sharing space with an even larger Selena banner and paper tires. In the middle of the shop, an intact side panel from a low rider truck attracted gallery goers who knew how to use it for a photo-op, and hit a cholo pose."
