Luis A. Gutierrez (LAG) was born in Cali, Colombia in 1990. When he was 13 his family relocated to South Florida. He currently resides and works in New York City. His paintings are a visual example of his experiences accumulated as an immigrant, they also question preconceived notions by offering a different perspective.
As an artist Gutierrez was mentored by Mix-Media artist Alfred Razza, he also attended Broward College (2010-2014) where his works were part of many students’ exhibitions. In 2015 Florida Atlantic University and Broward College chose him to create a mural in Fort Lauderdale as part of a public art project called “This is a Canvas”.
Gutierrez has exhibited his work at private galleries, Christie’s New York and the Coral Springs Museum of Art. His most recent solo show “Paper Boats and Planes: A Second Look at Childhood Memories” was held at Contemporaneo Asheville in North Carolina. In 2016 Gutierrez was featured on Telemundo’s “Con Estilo TV” and selected as a semi-finalist for the Bombay Sapphire Artisan Series. That same year Spectrum Miami Art Fair awarded him with the “Launchpad Artist Award”.
