Luis R. Gutiérrez was born August 1951 in Mexico DF. He received a History BA from UT San Antonio. His major focus was on Chicano History with elective studies in Painting and Sculpture. In 1978 he moved to SouthTexas, where he resumed his art interest in a non-degree tenure at Texas A&I University Kingsville. He studied Art History, Drawing, Printmaking, and Ceramics. In 1981 he moved to Austin to continue his art endeavor with a parallel career in the Austin Fire Department. He retired in 2010, ending an involvement that spanned 28 years, of which the last five, was spent as the Department’s photographer. He still lives and works in Austin.
Gutierrez is a multi-media artist. His installations reflect a sensibility to seek and to illustrate the relevance of specific topics or issues both present and historical as they relate to contemporary society.
