Over the last few years, Andrew Agutos has painted a collection of still lifes and interiors. Inspired by Van Gogh bedrooms and Manet tablescapes, Andrew depicts these scenes through a contemporary lens by including his favorite pairs of sneakers, pieces of fashion, food and pop culture references.

More important than adding these recognizable visual anecdotes is honoring the spaces and cities where they were painted. He has painted them in New York, London, Rome, Paris, Barcelona and more. They can be identified by signifiers distinguishable to each city in the form of particular tones of light, as well as personalized architecture, furniture and floors.

Andrew paints these to β€˜remember where he’s been in life’.
