Victor Acevedo brings to his current role as a music video director over 30 years of experience in the visual arts. Moreover he is a desktop computer art pioneer, having worked with digital media since 1983.
Although Acevedo is best known for his work in digital fine art he has worked with video technology on a personal experimental and documentary basis since early 1982.
Following the natural evolution of his work, Acevedo has moved from trad-media to digital - and later from still-imagery to motion graphics.
Considering the implications of Synethesia and given his avid interest in the visual life as well as computer graphic Synergetic geometry, Acevedo has positioned himself inside the genre called visual music.
He is currently accepting commissions to direct visual music works for a variety artists and producers, primarily for Electronica (from Drum n Bass to Ambient) as well as for the sophisticated end of (electronic pop) dance music.
Acevedo has most recently worked with DJ Liquid Acrobat (Darrin Fossella); performance artist Cynthia DeMoss; dancer-choreographer, Marsha Volgyi; Synergetics 3.0 geometer, Thomas Miller; Architect, Fabiano Schawbe and the R. Buckminster Fuller estate.
Acevedo is currently seeking funding and a production partner to help him further develop and produce a Blu-ray DVD Electronica visual music Anthology for the surround-sound home theater market as well as for iTunes and other mobile-download venues.
Victor Acevedo is an internationally known digital artist, best known for his computer graphic-photography hybrid print work. He attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena (1979-81). He lived in New York from 1995-2009 where he taught at the School of Visual Arts, MFA Computer Art program. Acevedo is now based in Los Angeles, California.
Inspired by a range of influences from M.C. Escher and Salvador Dali to R. Buckminster Fuller and Fritjof Capra, he produced a significant body of work in traditional media painting and drawing during the years 1977-1985. Acevedo made his last oil painting in 1984 and adopted computer graphics as his primary medium.
