Hector Acevedo

I was born in Lima in 1963.
In 1986, I was admitted to Peru’s Advanced Autonomous School of Fine Arts (Escuela Nacional Superior Autónoma de Bellas Artes del Peru – ENSABAP) to study drawing and painting, while continuing studies in civil engineering at the National University of Engineering (Universidad Nacional de Ingeniería – UNI).
Both majors involved a very specific set of aptitudes, and helped shape different life perspectives for me as a future artist. Between the demands of my engineering studies and my vital commitment to art, in the midst of a complex decision I ended up choosing to work in the field of plastic arts, where I found my true vocation and personal satisfaction.

I currently live in Spain.
