A los 17 años se embarca para Buenos Aires en donde trabaja como pintor de escenarios

Cecilio Pla y Gallardo.
En 1935 fija su residencia en El Salvador y crea su Academia de dibujo y pintura,

English translation:
Born on March 4, 1894, en Alcorisa, province of Teruel, Spain.
At 17 he heads to Buenos Aires where he works as a painter of theater backdrops. In 1931 he returns to Spain and studies with the great painter Cecilio Pla y Gallardo. In 1935 he sets up residency in El Salvador and creates his Academy of drawing and painting, forming during 30 years (1937-1969) many painters, that under his guidance and inspiration, reach high levels of artistry.
He dies in San Salvador on August 20, 1976, leaving an invaluable legacy to this land that he loved so much: on the one hand his extraordinary pictorial creation and on the other hand, his work to forge new futures in each of his disciples.
"Just like human history with Christianity, Salvadoran painting, has in Valero Lecha its greatest builder...There is no doubt that national artistry has a 'before' and an 'after' Valero Lecha."
