Federico Archuleta, also known as El Federico, is an Austin, TX graffiti artist[1] who has created several notable murals in Austin.

Several pieces of his street art on Guadalupe Street (the "Drag") contribute significantly to its unique aesthetic flavor of the area. Most prominent are the stencil-graffiti portraits of Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, the Clash and others on the old Tower Records/Varsity Theater building, as well as his portrait of Bob Dylan on the Hole in the Wall.

He has done several single pieces that cover the North and South walls of Cheapo Records, a popular music store on 10th and Lamar. Currently he has ten stenciled works to view.

His pieces are created with stencil and freehand spraypaint techniques, applied in multiple layers with bright, forceful colors.[2]
