About the Artist

Rudy Diaz was born in the borderlands of El Paso, and moved there permanently with his parents at the age of 4. He attended art school and makes video games for a living. Diaz enjoys drawing and sculpture.

Artist Statement

“I enjoy creating things that make people laugh. Also, why not make them a little scared while I am at it? I try to bring a smile to my own face when drawing or sculpting the things I enjoy. Hopefully, the viewer will see a little bit of themselves in my art.”

Changarrito cart April 16 – 17 & 23 – 24

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.

Rudy Diaz will be at the Mexic-Arte Museum featuring his artwork on the Changarrito cart right outside the Museum’s entrance on April 16 – 17 and 23 – 24, 12 pm – 3 pm. Come out and buy his artwork and get to know him in person! 

Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for updates on original work available for purchase and behind the scenes of the artist’s work, space, and creative process.
