David Acevedo is a Puerto Rican-American contemporary visual artist. Acevedo’s visual artist’s pictorial work is recognizable by the impeccably bold colors, textures and clever compositions. He has, however, created darker imagery attributed to his silent resistance to conformity and established stereotypes. A notable part of his depictions is the hidden message or symbols, which draw the viewer into each piece and proposes an almost inevitable wonder. Winner of the Visual Artist of the Year in 2009 and a FACE award in 2016, Acevedo is a co-founder of the very popular Fort Myers Art Walk, SoCo Second Saturdays and the DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery in Fort Myers, FL. Acevedo has participated in numerous solo and collective exhibitions in the United States, Europe and Asia.
