Every rock & roll fan worth his power chords knows that any band that rocks the charts enough times eventually has to come out with a greatest hits album. So in the spirit of Federico Archuleta's love of music, here's just such an album we've assembled for him. The list below contains only a fraction of his output, but on it are images that are his most familiar and most beloved. If you haven't seen them "in the wild" – that is, as the street art they were made to be – here's a guide to where you can find them. Well, make that find some of them; El Federico likes to reproduce his stencil art in different places, sometimes with variations.
