Victor Acevedo is considered a desktop computer art pioneer, as he was an early adopter of personal computer software to create fine art in the early 1980s. Originally from Los Angeles, Acevedo studied Studio art (painting and drawing) and Art history at the University of New Mexico, Albuquerque (1977–1988), and then attended Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA (1979–1981). He later taught at the School of Visual Art in New York (BFA and MFA Computer Art Departments, 1997–2008). He has shown his work in over 140 group and solo art exhibitions in the U.S. and Internationally since 1982.
Starting in 2007, considering the phenomenology of synesthesia and integrating real-time video-mix workflows into his audio-visual studio practice, Acevedo initially positioned himself inside the genre called visual Music. He later coined the term Electronic Visual Music (EVM) in 2013. This was to identify his motion graphic work more accurately in the digital domain. In recent years, participating in the NFT/Blockchain marketplace has been an integral part of his practice.
His work has been acquired (among others) by the Anne and Michael Spalter Digital Art Collection; The Victoria and Albert Museum, London, as part of the Patric Prince Digital Art Collection; the Museum der Stadt Gladbeck; and the Golden Plotter archives: Computer Kunst 1994 and 2006.
