Steven Gutierrez 'Gute' of Los Angeles, California studied Architecture following his honorable discharge from the U.S. Marines. An artist since he was a year old, Steven has exhibited in public spaces nearly twenty times since becoming a professional artist in 2011. He has been recognized by the office of the California State Legislature for his volunteer work on the Art On Millionaire's Row Committee and is a member of The Altadena Art Council . Steven also began the Anti-Orthoism movement. Anti-Orthoism refers to the restraints of the typical canvas or working surface on to which most artists are confined to. For example. When a viewer visits a gallery to observe paintings, although there may be multiple genres, each piece is bound to the orthogonal shape of the canvas. Anti-Orthoism allows the artist to be at liberty to exceed the typical limits of the canvas. Anti-Orthoism does not suggest existing shapes such as a triangle or circle but rather an organic composition that generally responds directly to the subject-matter. This includes the surface of a canvas. Anti-Orthoism may include multiple surfaces within a single composition. Gute began this genre as a means to free artists from restricting themselves to a rectangle or square shaped work-surface. Examples of Anti-Orthoism are currently being produced by Gute.
