Leo Valledor passed away in 1989.

Leo Valledor is part of many permanent collections including the San Francisco Art Museum, the Yale Art Museum, and the Seattle Art Museum.

Valledor was very unique in his design often cropping a portion of a circle and then breaking this shape down further into basic geometric shapes. The artist was also a leader in the Minimalist movement. This is evident in his limited but bold color palette.
