Gutierrez’s work is, in part, shaped by his Peruvian roots: pre-Colombian forms and native Peruvian art. The paintings’ subject matter engages themes of Peruvian peasant life. The artist is also influenced by the modern French masters, including Cézanne, Gauguin, and Matisse. He is a brilliant colorist, reflecting the palettes of Gauguin and Matisse and the juxtaposition of contrasting colors of Seurat’s pointillism. Some of his paintings employ a Cubist simplification of forms and volumes. In "Vendiendo Frutas," the arrangement of figures is frieze-like, recalling pre-Colombian architectural ornament. In addition, the simplification of the figures’ faces resembles pre-Columbian sculpture. Vibrant colors express the liveliness of a busy market.
