Manuel Acevedo's work combines projected image, wall drawing, animation and photography to explore how light and movement shape experience. Through various media, he employs visual language in ways that transform flat, static images into active spaces of experimentation.
In the Artist Studios, Acevedo is working on a series titled Alpha-bits, an extension of his Made and Unmade series, which deploys covert/overt military language through encoded forms in hybrid typography executed as wall drawings, sculptural work on paper, and optical illusions through the use of luminous (fluorescent) light and ultraviolet (black) light.
Acevedo has studied at the School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute. He has participated in several artist residencies and exhibits nationally.
