Galería Contempo recently announced its reopening for the forthcoming Winter season with a special exhibition of new works by Mexican artist Abelardo Favela. The successful Emiliano Zapata gallery first exhibited works of the artist on January of this year, and the public’s response to his colorful depictions of everyday life was very favorable.

The multi-faceted artist was born in Mexicali in 1948 but moved to Guadalajara and eventually Mexico City, where he began painting in 1970. Alongside with his artistic pursuits, he was a TV producer for Channel 13, a cultural public television network, and subsequently opened and directed Grupo Match, his own advertising agency, where he produced over 250 commercials before retiring to paint full time. With over 25 individual exhibitions, the artist’s works now hang in many private collections.

Galeria Contempo is located at Basilio Badillo 252, in Colonia Emiliano Zapata. Explore other galleries in VirtualVallarta.com's gallery section.
