Ellery Gutiérrez

Born in Maracay, Aragua State, Venezuela. On September 1st, 1969 When he was a young child, discovered in art history books the paintings of the Renaissance and Baroque of the Old Italian masters, where light, shadow and a figure well-made called his attention. Such was his enthusiasm that he started out as a self-taught artist, experimenting with drawing.Then at 20 years of age moving to Caracas city in Venezuela, where he began taking courses in drawing and painting in various artist studios, specializing in oil painting. His large-scale, realist paintings of tropical fruits and flowers reveal his passion for light and color, which he uses in an accomplished and delicate manner to enhance the succulent nature of his chosen subjects.
