Leo Valledor, born in San Francisco in 1936, was an American artist of Filipino heritage. He studied at the San Francisco School of Fine Arts before relocating to New York in 1961. Valledor was a founding member of the Park Place Gallery, an influential avant-garde gallery in New York’s SoHo neighborhood, and was among the leaders of minimalist, conceptual painting in the 1960s and 70s. His works focus on uses of color and shape to accentuate depth, create movement, and create the illusion of dimensional space. This particular piece hung on the wall of the Vogel’s bedroom.
