Guillermo Acevedo bio, two

Don Guillermo Acevedo is best known for his powerful and perceptive detailed drawings of people, especially the Native Americans of the Southwest. His great sensitivity, apparent in all his drawings, marks him as a draftsman of outstanding talent.

Guillermo Acevedo was a master at recording the human condition. As was described by Betje Howell, then art critic for the Los Angeles Herald Examiner, Acevedo is a “virtuoso draftsman…his imagery, on close study, becomes an illusion, an evanescent dream where Man endlessly enacts the rituals of his particular heritage. Perhaps his Inca forebears or his cultural heritage gives the Peruvian-born artist another dimension in seeing.” His drawings and paintings have been exhibited locally, nationally, and internationally.
