Do Snacks with Juan Acevedo Fernandez de Paredes

April 5, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Juan Acevedo Fernández de Paredes (b. 1949) is a Peruvian artist and art educator widely known for his 50-year trajectory as a cartoonist, especially for his famous character El Cuy. Juan’s prolific work is compiled in outstanding comic books that reveal his political and humanistic concerns as well as his expertise in a variety of techniques and styles. His cartoons are very sophisticated and intimate at different levels. For instance, the iconic Cuy, a Peruvian guinea pig, is now 39 years old. El Cuy is still time traveling with his friend Humberto, and facing his archenemy, the fascist Videchet (alluding to dictators Videla-Argentina- and Pinochet-Chile).

Juan’s pedagogical vocation is manifest in his materials for creating cartoons and in his workshops. His foundational book Para hacer historietas (Creating Comic Strips) is the result of his early experiences in developing cartooning workshops.
