Victor Acevedo is an artist and desktop computer art pioneer, best known for his digital work involving printmaking, imaging and video. He attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena (1979-81). He lived in New York City from 1995 to 2009 where he taught at the School of Visual Arts, MFA Computer Art program. He is now based in Los Angeles, California.
Acevedo brings to his current roles as music video director / video editor, motion graphics artist and LIVE visualist (VJ) over 35 years of experience in the visual arts. Following a natural evolution, his work has moved from traditional media to digital and later from still-imagery to motion graphics. Considering the implications of Synesthesia and given his avid interest in contemporary Electronic Beat music as well as Digital Cinema and Synergetic Geometry, Acevedo has positioned himself inside the genre called VISUAL MUSIC. His music video productions are informed by a synthesis of these traditions, disciplines, phenomenologies.
Acevedo's interest in Electronic Beat music, began with his introduction to Drum and Bass in NYC early 1995. Returning to Los Angeles in 2009 he soon immersed himself into the local electronic underground. As a result, his most recent visual music works have integrated dance forms like Drum n Bass and Dubstep as spun at club nights such as RESPECT and SMOG as well as the more experimental forms of abstract, hip-hop/dubstep, BASS heavy music that can be found at the community's epicenter, LOW END THEORY.
Acevedo's digital fine art work has been featured in several books including: "Moving Innovation: A History of Computer Animation". (Tom Sito, MIT Press 2013) "Digital Art" (Wolf Lieser, Ullman /Tandem 2009) ; "From Technological to Virtual Art" ( Frank Popper, MIT Press 2007) ; "Art of the Digital Age" (Bruce Wands,Thames and Hudson, 2006) ; "Escher's Legacy: A Centennial Celebration," (edited by Doris Schattschneider and Michelle Emmer, Springer Verlag 2002.)

Well hello there..... Glad you like the photo - cropped out my double chin. Ha. True!
Well I was only there a short time and in that short time managed to fall into an elevator ... when the door opened, I stepped in, the elevator kept going up and I fell like I had been poleaxed... and fractured my leg.... Didn't know though untiil the next day and managed to give my talk at the Birds of a Feather panel anyway. No pain until that night.... and then, boy, did I need pain pills. All is well know and my insurance covered everything ... so no law suit against the City of L.A.
