Have you heard of this guy named Luis Gutierrez? On the tip of your brain? That may be because New Times recently wrote a cover story on the guy (Paint on a Happy Face, Malia Politzer, December 31, 2009). With a resume that includes the Heard Museum, the Phoenix Art Museum, and the Smithsonian, Gutierrez has much to be proud of. Not to mention the forty-year old thrives in spite of his multiple sclerosis. Known for delightfully bright color schemes, simplistic figures, and biting subject matter, his paintings are instantly recognizable.
