Guillermo Acevedo - bio

Guillermo Acevedo was born on October 5, 1920, in Arequipa, a city situated at the foot of volcano Misti in Southern Peru. At the age of sixteen, he and his family moved to Lima where his father, a builder, architect and dreamer, followed a building boom to Peruís capital.

Guillermo studied art at Limaís Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, and for many years operated his own advertising business and commercial art studio in Lima before immigrating to the US in 1959. After a very fruitful career in San Diego as an artist, he and his wife Lydia moved to San Francisco to continue his work. They remained there until his death in October, 1988. Lydia now lives in San Diego at her home where Guillermo's art can be viewed by appointment.
