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

Archuleta draws on his Catholic upbringing as a first generation American in creating his works, including Lets Band Together and Virgen de Guadalupe.[2][3] 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.[4][5]

He was commissioned by Jarritos to create some murals in southern California.[6]
