Professor Mauri Oskari Favén (born 26 August 1920 in Tampere – 23 February 2006 in Helsinki) was a Finnish painter. His uncle was the painter Antti Favén and his grandfather's brother was the painter Aukusti Uotila.
In the 1940s, Favén studied in the Free Arts School of Finland and in the Finnish Academy of Arts. He made his debut as a painter in Helsinki in 1947, and this started his long career. Favén's works have been shown in numerous Finnish and foreign exhibitions, both private and group exhibitions.
In 1970, Favén received the Pro Finlandia prize, and in 1989 he was granted the title of Professor. Since 1986, he was on an artist's retirement, paid by the Finnish state.
