Artist Statement

Andrew Agutos takes a poetic approach between abstract and figurative, non-chronologically creating series of paintings that capture the energy and essence of the moment, experience, etc. The result is a visual/written library: depths of human emotion, snapshots of cool, connecting the dots between dreams, design, desire, cities, love, luxury.

Unbound by a distinct style, Andrew’s paintings are blended together by the language of color with nods to art history, the internet, rap music and fashion. Having an affinity for iconic imagery, he has designed and photographed for several fashion brands and figuresβ€”work that directly informs and relates back to his painting. 


Andrew Agutos, living and working in Paris, France, is an American artist born in San Jose, California who received his Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting/Drawing at California College of the Arts in San Francisco. He has lived and exhibited in major metropolitan cities such as San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York and Paris. Andrew has completed artist residencies in Skopelos, Greece and Anhui Province, China.
