About the Artist:
Carlos Donjuan was born in San Luis Potosi, San Luis, Mexico in 1982. He immigrated to the United States with his family at the very young age of 3. He grew up in Dallas, Texas where he discovered graffiti art, which helped him develop a passion for art and painting. He holds an M.F.A from The University of Texas at San Antonio, studying under Ken Little. Donjuan is currently a professor at The University of Texas at Arlington where he teaches drawing and painting.
Currently residing in Dallas, he remains an active graffiti artist painting murals throughout the city. His paintings have been exhibited in several galleries nationally and internationally. The Cheech Marin Collection – which houses the largest private Chicano Art collection in America – recently acquired several of Donjuan’s paintings.
