This biography from the Archives of AskART:
"John Valadez was born in Los Angeles.  He earned his bachelor’s degree in fine arts in 1976 from California State University, Long Beach.  

He has had several solo exhibitions in Los Angeles galleries, as well as in San Francisco and New York.  During the middle and late 1970s, Valadez often worked on mural projects with young people; however, none of those murals still exist.  In 1991, he completed a mural for the General Services Administration in El Paso, Texas.  He spent 1996-98 working on a major mural commission for the federal courthouse in Santa Ana, Calif.

Valadez was one of the founding members, with Carlos Almaráz, Frank Romero and Richard Duardo, of the Public Arts Center in Highland Park, Calif. organized to provide studio space and access to cooperative mural projects.

In 1980, Valadez was included in a group exhibition, Espina, at LACE Gallery, Los Angeles, where his work was seen by the owner of the Victor Clothing Co. on Broadway In Los Angeles.  Valadez was invited to submit a proposal for portraits to hang in the store; a year and a half later, he completed work on “The Broadway Mural” at 242 Broadway, which remains one of the most extraordinary achievements to grow out of the mural movement: an oil painting eight-feet-high, stretching to 60 feet in length, that depicts in an utterly realistic way the many textures of life on one of downtown Los Angeles’s busiest and grittiest streets."
