ビクター・ニシオ・ヤスオカ

(Victor Nishio Yasuoka)

Victor Nishio Yasuoka is a third-generation descendant of Japanese immigrants in Peru. Halfway through elementary school, he moved with his family to Panama, where he finished school. Almost 10 years later, he returned to Peru, finding the country completely changed. He studied architecture at a public university, but realized that his greatest interest lay in the field of communications. Today, living in Lima, Victor is a publicist, visual artist, and columnist.

To take a look at his work, visit his new website: www.victor.pe, where you will find all his artistic, graphic, and literary output.
