This biography from the Archives of AskART:
The oil paintings of Texas artist Raul Gutierrez reflect the heritage of his state and include cowboys in landscape, Indians staring directly into the eyes of the viewers and birds such as Bobwhites camouflaging themselves in the brush. 

Born in Laredo, Gutierrez moved to San Antonio with his family during his high school years, and by this time was already showing art talent.  His drawing and sketching skills earned him an art scholarship to the Warren Hunter School of Commercial and Fine Arts, which he attended at night while going to high school during the day.

Gutierrez exhibited many talents including that of illustrator at the Pentagon in Washington DC,  political cartoonist and newspaper illustrator at the San Antonio Light from 1957 to 1972, poet and songwriter in his native Spanish language, and fine-art painter in his 'spare time'.

Publication references include The Artists of the Texas, Public School Book Anthology Texas, People Magazine October 1998 issue, Houston Chronicle Texas Magazine 1970 and 1984, San Antonio Light, San Antonio Homes & Gardens, Red Rock News-Sedona, AZ, Memos-Houston Doctor’s Magazine, San Antonio Express, Irving Daily News, The State of Art, San Antonio Monthly, Images-SA Express-News, and Texas Outdoors Journal.

When he felt enough confidence in his painting, he focused his abilities on that pursuit, and also spent much time researching his subjects because with Gutierrez, authenticity is a major concern.

Collectors of his work include the late President Lyndon B. Johnson; former Texas Governor Connally; former President of Mexico, Miguel Aleman; and nationally known country and western singer and actor, George Strait.

Biography from NanEtte Richardson Fine Art:
Cowboys dash across the Texas landscape.  Indians stare stoically into the viewer’s eyes.  Bobwhites camouflage themselves in the brush.  Common themes become rare on the canvases of Raul Gutierrez.

Born in Laredo, the artist moved with his family to San Antonio during his high-school years.  By this time, he was already drawing and sketching well enough to earn an art scholarship.  He attended the Warren Hunter School of Commercial and Fine Arts at night while going to high school during the day.

Gutierrez was a jack of all trades:  he was a soldier in Korea, an illustrator at the Pentagon, a political cartoonist and illustrator at the San Antonio Light from 1957 to 1972, a poet and songwriter in his native Spanish language, and an artist in his spare time.

He has been included in Southwest’s The Artists of the Texas, Public School Book Anthology Texas, People Magazine October 1998 issue, and other publications:  Houston Chronicle Texas Magazine 1970 and 1984, San Antonio Light, San Antonio Homes & Gardens, Red Rock News-Sedona, AZ, Memos-Houston Doctor’s Magazine, San Antonio Express, Irving Daily News, The State of Art, San Antonio Monthly, Images-SA Express-News, and Texas Outdoors Journal.

Reaching a point of confidence in his painting, he determined to focus his abilities on that aspect of his varied life.  Authenticity is a major concern, and Gutierrez spends hours researching his subjects.  Originality is of equal importance to the artist; his technique and presentation are uniquely his and immediately recognized.  His paintings are in distinguished collections in the Southwest.  Collectors include the late President Lyndon B. Johnson, former Texas Governor Connally, former President of Mexico, Miguel Aleman, and country and western singer and actor, George Strait.

Raul and his wife, Socorro, are modest individuals whose generosity is anything but modest; giving back to their community is a way of life.
