Jorge Arturo Valero

Mexican American Artist b. 1967

Brief History

I was born in Mexico City and came to the United States in 1972. I developed a fascination for Art at an early age and at 12, was asked attended studio classes at Lock Haven University. Unfortunately, this only lasted 2 years and I am self taught otherwise.

In 1989 I moved close to Manhattan to grow as an artist. In 1995 I turned to Illustration and was published by the Washington Post a year later. I soon became a regular with the LA Times and have since worked with hundreds of newspapers and magazines. The kind of conceptual work I do is typically suited for editorial content. But, this kind of problem solving works well in many other areas from, corporate publications and institutional material to advertising on a lot of levels. I have been published in Italy, Germany, Spain, Holland, Australia, China and throughout the United States. See client list below.

In 2005, I started splitting my time between Illustration and gallery work. I probably spend too much time working but, it’s fun and besides, what else would I do – I don’t like to fish and I don’t play golf.

Personal Work

Sister Wendy Beckett said, “All good art is hypnotizing.” From a metaphysical point of view it makes perfect sense. I needed to explore the nature of, “being,” and what being, was about. I needed to find the truth about myself and why I did, the things I did. – The beaded curtain series is the result of that examination. Visit the site to learn more.
