Sebastián Gutiérrez is a Puerto Rican visual artist currently based in Puerto Rico. His work focuses on the influence of identity on personal behavior and lust as protagonists in public environments. The subject matter is majorly derived from self-development manifested in relation to the every day coexisting stranger. Sebastián is influenced by vintage fashion editorials and illustrations, interior design and cartoons, to create pieces that reveal eye-opening ideas learned through contrast. Sebastián’s pieces are created to be aesthetically pleasing and in some cases, interactive. Even though his main medium is oil paint, it is usually presented on everyday items such as doors, rugs, windows, or toys; he wants to give the spectator an instant sense of familiarity
“Summer Dreaming” is a part of the Inner Beauty Collection, which consists of a series of interactive oil paintings covered with spandex. The pieces started at the beginning of 2019 with an urge to combine textiles, fashion illustration, interior design and painting in one piece and making it interactive. The Inner Beauty Collection is a tactile experience the viewer has with a painting, braking the boundaries one usually has towards “art”, resulting with the sense of participation.
