This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Artist: Guillermo Acevedo (Peruvian-American: 1920-1988).

“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 Peru’s capital.

Guillermo studied art at Lima’s 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.

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.”
