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.

“…Verito, let me tell you that I am moved and touched by your paintings. They show the innocence and purity of a child’s soul. It made me remember how I used to see the world when I was young. Everything was full of love and fantasy. It would be great if as adults, we could see it the same way, but it’s complicated. Fortunately, there are still some beings like you, that through their art they remind us the beauty and peaceful that life can be. A kiss for you and continue with your success. Your friend and admirer, Fanny…”
