Jerod DTOX Davies
Master Street Artist and Muralist
By the age of 3, Jerod “DTOX” Davies was already attempting to make works of art at the encouragement of his family, but it wasn’t until he saw giant murals in videos and movies that his creativity really ignited. Today, Jerod’s mark on the city is hard to miss: in addition to running the charitable art collective JUST US LEAGUE, he’s painted the largest graffiti mural in Dallas County, as well as columns, bridges, and the welcome sign to Deep Ellum. He’s earned high-profile commissions from Erykah Badu, a collection of NFL and NBA players, Jean Paul Gaultier, and more.
