About the Artist
Federico Archuleta has been part of Austin’s landscape for almost two decades. More than likely you’ve interacted with his art while dining, shopping, walking, and enjoying the city of Austin. Archuleta has certainly contributed to our city’s aesthetic and still does.
His continued presence in the East Austin Studio Tour, community events, and the walls of local businesses has infused his art and musical influences throughout the city. Federico’s poignant analyses of our times are clear, colorful, and often filled with humor. He communicates with Austin like no one else, and we’re grateful for the continued conversation.
“Photography is always been a family business, both of my parents were an early influence back in Mexico, where I grew up and learn the fundamental skills of photography and business, before the digital era. While I was building my career in photography I graduated Summa Cum Laude with a degree in Industrial Design and Product Development. After that, I move to Mexico City and had the pleasure to work with a renamed Industrial Designer and an amazing Innovation Agency while I was photographing branding events like Hermes and Macallan Whiskey. In 2012, I moved to Austin to pursue my dreams of becoming an artist. Austin has allowed me to connect with other artists, organize art events as a curator, and participate in art events and shows as an artist like EAST Austin Tours and the Mexic-Arte Museum.”
Changarrito Cart July 12 – 13 & 19 – 20
Artists have the opportunity to sell their art on the Changarrito cart in front of the Museum (or an offsite location, as representative for the Museum during various Austin festivals). Changarreando expands the reach of the artist by presenting their gallery online, while allowing the option to sell merch over Instagram and receive 100% of the sale.
Federico Archuleta and Lucero Archuleta were at the Mexic-Arte Museum featuring their artwork on the Changarrito cart right outside the Museum’s entrance on July 12 – 13 & 19 – 20, 2014.
