East 26 Projects first worked with John Valadez in 2017 when he was commissioned for the mural River Rescue (image shown above) at the Fine Art Solutions compound. This mural beautifully commemorates one of Los Angeles' most iconic bridges as the back drop for Valadez's signature classic cars surrounded by frothy water. And let's not forget the bathing beauty playfully being held as though just rescued by her gallant companion at the end of a romantic film, with a sci-fi twist - see if you can spot the flying saucer.
Fun fact: the blue 1970 Chevy truck exists! It belongs to our very own company owner, Ramon Valdez.
In the summer of 2018, we had the pleasure of showing some of Valadez's incredible works for the exhibition Rodriguez/ Valadez in Vernon.
