Name: Victor Acevedo
Country of Origin: US
Victor Acevedo is a “desktop computer art pioneer” (ADA) inspired by a range of influences from M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali to R. Buckminster Fuller. Acevedo’s early works, in the late 1970s and early ’80s, were more traditional paintings and drawings, but in 1985 he adopted computer graphics as his primary medium. His first important computer graphic print was Ectoplasmic Kitchen, produced in 1987 and exhibited for the first time in the following year.
In 1994, Acevedo began his distinct “silver geometry period”, producing such works as Skull and Suit on the Phone. His work has been published and purchased by multiple institutions, and featured at exhibitions internationally. In 1998, Ectoplasmic Kitchen and other prints were exhibited alongside Escher’s at the international M.C. Escher Centennial Congress in Rome.
By 2008-09, Acevedo began to shift his attention to producing visual musical works. His current music video productions are informed by electronic music, digital cinema, computer animation and synergetic geometry.
