John Valadez, ‘Brooklyn’, 80/Printed 2014, Robert Berman Gallery

JOHN VALADEZ, a realist painter and muralist who takes as his subject the urban landscape and people of Los Angeles, was born, raised, and continues to live in L.A. His style might be compared to that of photorealists, such as Richard Estes, who gained prominence in the 1970s. However, his work is not a purely documentary reflection of mainstream society.
