Andrew Agutos paints about seeing life as poetically as possible. Ranging from a matrix of abstractions to dreamlike figurative works documenting his experiences of love, soul and detachment, or commercially inspired paintings driven by his design/photo work for various brands - these paintings act as time stamps of every significant moment in the artist’s life.
Andrew Agutos makes canvases, murals, gifs, videos, photography and products. He works with different brands on art direction, design and advertising. His artistic practice and commercial work are in constant dialogue with each other - blended by the language of color, the internet and iconic women with nods to art history, rap music, cities and clothing.
