He’s an Oak Cliff graffiti artist who moved into acrylic paintings and watercolors. Carlos Donjuan’s artworks — with their haunting masked figures — have been seen in Milan, San Francisco and Barcelona, bought by Cheech Marin (of Cheech and Chong) and they’ve been printed up in national magazines.

Donjuan is Senior Lecturer and Area Coordinator in the Department of Art + Art History at UT Arlington and a UT alumni. This week, he was highlighted on Art & Seek Artist Spotlight to explore his personal journey as a North Texas creative.
