This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Guerrero Galván was born in Tonalá, Jalisco, in 1910.  He studied at the San Antonio Art School in Texas and in 1928 he moved to Guadalajara, where he made his first mural, to study at the Escuela de Pintura Libre.  He lived in Mexico City in the 1930s and became quite known for his figurative paintings.  He was part of what was called the Movimiento de Creación Plástica, which was contemporary to the Mexican Muralist Movement.  Besides mural painting, Galván worked in oil paintings, lithographs, and illustrations. In 1947, he illustrated a book about Quetzacoatl, written by Ermilo Abreu Gómez.  He is also considered to be one of the best portrait artists in Mexican history.

In the political realm, Guerrero Galván was also a member of groups like Alianza de Trabajadores de Artes Plásticas, and he was a founding member of the Unión de Pintores y Grabadores de México in 1959 along with Raúl Anguiano, Carlos Orozco Romero and Juan O'Gorman. 

As with most of the Mexican artists of the time, he became a deputy for the Partido Popular in 1952 and in 1960 he visited the Soviet Union with some members of his party.  He died in Cuernavaca, Morelos, in 1973.
