With world travel on pause, Rainer Andreesen finds himself exactly where he wants to be: at home in Sag Harbour, where he can cycle to the beach and paint for his upcoming show in peace. Here, the artist and model tells SMR Days why he’s living his bucket list every day – and the cocktail you’ll always find in his beach bag.
If I could be anywhere in the world right now I would be exactly where I am – in the Hamptons, Sag Harbour, New York where I paint, go to the beach on my bike and enjoy life. It has not been a big change for me aside from travelling for work – I am really just thinking about everyone on the front lines, though.
I live in my bucket list and hope to rarely travel.
I’m painting for my upcoming show, which will be announced once this mess is all over. I am also watching the British detective series Scott and Bailey, and catching up on some documentaries and movies while waiting for paint to dry.
My favourite hotel is Covent Garden Hotel in London. The staff are incredible and the location is prime for my theatre, museum and shopping visits.
It has to be a collection of Murano glass bottles from an incredible trip to northern Italy. They have outlasted every purge for the past 30 years and that is a miracle.
There are many – pizza in Italy, sushi in Hawaii, tikka masala in India, but the best vacation meal would have to be [when I spent] a week on a boat in the Bahamas – every single meal was perfection.
My favourite beach in the world is in Amagansett, New York in front of my friend’s beach house where I can take a shower, eat, drink and be left alone – most of the time. I can spend a good ten hours there.
In my beach bag is always a container of vodka, seltzer and two sets of headphones along with my phone – and a back-up vodka.
My favourite holiday drink is a caipirinha and the best place to have it is on the beaches of Brazil. The best beach drink ever! Like a healthy acid trip.
