I often have a very active and spontaneous style of painting which as you can see from these studio shots can get rather “interesting” if you know what I mean! Of course this represents hundreds and hundreds of tubes of paint and I am sure enough canvas to cover a football field! The reward is that I have artwork hanging in collections all over the world. I feel like a tiny bit of myself is there with them as I put a piece of myself into each painting I create. I hope that my artwork bring them joy and contemplation each day that it hangs on their home and office walls. Nestor Toro – Los Angeles

I am really happy to announce that Nestor Toro was recommended by online gallery ArtFinder as being a recommended artist to invest in as my artwork has increased 93% since 2014 when I started selling with the gallery. The price of my work has increased each year I have been selling. I sell on several online galleries and you can also buy my art or commission work here on my site.
Having collectors enjoy my work so much that they buy it for their homes is rewarding. Having collectors commission works is equally as rewarding if not more so…why…because the collector trusts in my talent, ability and creativity to create a work specifically for them! It is a challenge but so rewarding that I love doing it!
Here is a recently finished commission for a customer who purchased a work and then contacted me for a commission to mark a specific event in his life.
Are you interested in a commission for your home or office or perhaps you like my work but have a specific need such as a size or color combination. Find out about my commissions by clicking the button below!
I am a painter and my work is pure abstraction. Some might think they are easy to do and that anyone could do them. These people are of course wrong!
Wassily Kandinsky said, “Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw, have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colors and that you are a true poet. This last is essential.“
As you can see the ability to start with a blank canvas and apply color in a harmonious and visually balanced is necessary. Abstract painting is much more than simply throwing or appling random colors in a random manner. Nestor Toro – Painter
