Verito

Veronica Pacheco was born on December 7, 1979 in Lima, Peru. When she was 2 years old, she was diagnosed as being severely mentally challenged. ‘Verito’, as shes likes to be called, has achieved to develop in diverse human fields, in which art outstands.

Verito’s art work is characterized by her characters, mainly harlequins, who live in her fantastic world, full of color and joy, full of movement and freedom, surrounded by balloons, musical notes and hearts.

Verito’s paintings are classified in 3 styles: Primary Fantastic, Recycled Fantastic and Intermediate Fantastic. The Primary Fantastic Style is characterized by characters that flow from her own imagination. The characters of her Recycled Fantastic Style are born from the interpretation of pre-existing models of clowns, scarecrows, puppets, dancers, artists, etc. The intermediate Fantastic Style is a fusion between both previous styles.

The trace of her drawings characterizes her artistic development, in oil and acrylic, as well as in watercolor and ink. Verito uses diverse formats, beyond the traditional ones.

Verito loves to title every single one of her paintings. In some cases, her characters have their own name. As soon as an idea spreads up, Verito titles it immediately. Some titles are not grammatically correct, but they have been conserved with the original name, to respect her creative imagination.

It is very interesting to observe how each title represents the general idea of the painting.

Fans

“…Hello Veronica!! It’s a pleasure to communicate with you. I wanted to ask you: in what things do get your inspiration from to create the great paintings that you make? I like to paint, but sometimes it’s a little bit difficult to get some inspiration. I love all the paintings you have done so far. My favorite paintings are “The Buffoon Fisherman of Love” and “The Buffoon in Love with the Moon”. I wish you are doing great and keep performing the most beautiful paintings I have ever seen. Kisses!…”
