The Las Vegas Backyard Wall is a local Downtown wall settled in a residential neighborhood in the shadow of the Stratosphere. The wall is open to invited artists that have radical ideas for it. Each artist will paint over the previous artists work and will be documented by time lapse photography. This time around artist, Justin Favela, has been working on quite a beauty and on May 24th they’ll be celebrating at the wall with one big party. Come out and cheers Justin; enjoy tasty food, good beer, interesting art, and great company.

A Message from Artist, Justin Fvela:

 Directly translated, “Puro Jale”, means “pure pull” or “just work.” This is a term that I always heard growing up at family gatherings and backyard parties. The term was almost used as a greeting:

“What’s new?”

“Puro jale.”

When asked to participate in the Las Vegas Backyard Wall series, those backyard family gatherings immediately came to mind. People getting together celebrating each other and relaxing after a week of hard work. For this month’s mural I had the help of friends, family and a few day laborers to make this installation happen. After a hard week of work, it’s time to celebrate!
