Paul Valadez was born in California in a Mexican-American Family. He has been called Hispanic, Chicano, Latino, Mexican-American, Californian, Texan, but rarely just an American Artist. He identifies himself as a Proud Mexican-American. He grew up in Stockton, California and moved back to San Francisco, where he was born, to pursue an art career. He graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a BFA in Interdisciplinary Art, and in 2003, earned an MFA in Studio Art from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where he was awarded a Weiss Fellowship for Urban Livability. His goal has been to make art as a Mexican-American artist that challenges the viewer’s preconceived notions of what Mexican-American art can be.
