Juna Wesley (Minneapolis, USA, 1996) has been living and working in Porto, Portugal since 2014. She has a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a specialization in Sculpture from the University of Porto. Juna’s practice is multidisciplinary, incorporating various mediums such as printmaking, installation, and video. Her work often explores themes revolving around the subconscious mind, identity, origin, and memory. Mainly rooted in abstraction, her practice is visually characterized through the use of texture, patterns, repetition, and superimposition. Juna has participated in various projects and solo/collective exhibitions such as: "Encompass" at Galeria Presença; “CIRCA” at Dentro; “Unfinished” at OKNA Art Space; “Nada Está Escrito Afinal Performance” at Passos Manuel; “Traversing the In-between” at PB27 Gallery.
