Ricardo Favela is a Chicano artista. His art reflects the experience of Chicanos (Mexican Americans) in the United States and more specifically, California in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Valley’s. He is a native of the San Joaquin Valley, a son of Farm Laborers. Therefore, his artistic aesthetic is rooted in the plight of the people, “los povertycitos” as he would say. Seen and Unseen: Ricardo Favela Expressions of Chicano/a Art is on display at Arts Visalia March 3rd-April 30th.
