We had the good fortune of connecting with justin aversano and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi justin, how does your business help the community?
SaveArtSpace helps the local community and enriches the world by shifting the paradigm in the public space from consumerism to community empowerment through public art! Our mission is to transform advertisement space into public art spaces by and for the local community. We provide artists a platform to share their creative message to their neighborhood. Encouraging people that you too can be an artist; everyone has a voice, a vision, and a dream. We aim to support peoples dream by giving them an opportunity to create larger than life artwork. Touching upon global and social issues that impact all of our lives everyday. Bringing attention to the conversations and dialogues that must be had in order to push our culture forward. Towards acceptance and understanding all walks of life. All ages, races, genders, and talents are welcome to create with SaveArtSpace. Art is a vehicle of connectivity, and public art connects everyone.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Everyday has a lesson, and there are challenges that come along the way. Being an artist is not easy, it takes a lot of work, a lot of guys, and a lot of determination to overcome doubt and strive towards achieving the great vision of creativity. Be patient, know when to strike, and do not stop creating art. Make friends in all different places, everyone has a talent. It is imperative to always do your best. Gratitude will get you very far in this world.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Surfing at Topanga beach the entire week. Goto museum or galleries. Go get vegan food. and most importantly, make art and hangout in nature!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I am grateful for Nicole Buffett. The woman who stands by my side and supports all the work I do for the community. She is an incredible artist, and one of the greatest inspirations in my life. I love you Nicole.
