Julio “Juls” Mendoza, B.A. ’12, Denver, was commissioned to create a live painting at the 2023 Colorado Latino Leadership and Legacy Gala earlier this fall. The annual gala serves as a platform to recognize, empower and connect the exceptional Latino leaders who are redefining our cultural and political landscape. Julio is a Denver-based multi-disciplinary artist born in El Paso, Texas and raised in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico. Juls’ style is defined greatly by his Mexican heritage and Latino culture. He has created large-scale murals across Colorado and in Mexico.
