Who is John Valadez?
John Valadez was born in Los Angeles, California, and studied at East Los Angeles Junior College 1970-1972. Valadez completed education at the California State University, Long Beach, receiving a B.F.A. degree in 1986. Valadez is a realist painter who deals with the urban landscape and the people of Los Angeles where he was born, and continues to live. He is a muralist whose work has been compared to that of Richard Estes, the photorealist whose works in the 1970s documented urban settings with astonishing veracity. Valadez, however is not as documentary as Estes in his approach. Valadez paints highly realistic images from the imagination --the world of dreams or hallucinations rooted in earthly experiences. Valadez' awards, commissions and group exhibitions are extensive. Solo exhibitions in museums include two at the Carnegie Art Museum in Oxnard, CA. (2000 & 2001) and one at the Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art, New York City (1986). His mural commissions are to be seen in the Federal Bujilding at border crossing Station, Isleta, TX; The Santa Ana Federal Court House Administration building in California, the Pasadena Metro Godline Memeorial Park Station, Pasadena, and the Junipero Serra State Building Mural Project, State of California, Los Angeles, Ca. Records for Valadez show an abundant number of critical reviews and press publications as well as a highly active exhibition record throughout the nation. He is an artist with extensive biographical data listed in Who’s Who in American Art in 2010 p. 1378. That source cites his mailing address as : c/o Daniel Saxon Gallery, 552 Norwich Dr., West Hollywood, CA. 90048.

A Jackson Browne original artwork/concept painting for his album jacket 'Lives in the Balance,' 1986

Lot 6360: A Jackson Browne original artwork/concept painting for his album jacket 'Lives in the Balance,' 1986

Auction Date: Jun 14, 2009

Estimate: $1,500 - $2,000

Description: Rendered on board in airbrush paint and other media, image depicts the Statue of Liberty to the left while Browne is on the right; signed on lower margin by Richard S. Duardo and John Valadez (both noted Southern California contemporary artists). Only the Statue of Liberty part made it to Browne's album cover; the somewhat craggy version of him that Duardo and Valadez created was scrapped for a younger image that was used on the back cover. Interestingly, the title song of this album, 'Lives in the Balance,' was critically acclaimed (for its anti-Reaganism stance) and was used in a 1986 episode of "Miami Vice" and in a 1987 PBS documentary called "The Secret Government: The Constitution in Crisis" by journalist Bill Moyers.
