Why should I buy your art?
Simple answer – you should buy my work because it resonates with you!
Art is to be experienced and enjoyed so buy what you will enjoy, what will inspire you, and what “speaks” to you! Don’t simply rely on a curator or interior designer to tell you what to buy – You know what you like! I have nothing against using a professional and I work with both. However, you certainly will know it when you see it.
You are probably here on my site because you saw my artwork on-line or someone shared my site’s link via social media. Perhaps you simply Googled “abstract art Los Angeles“, and you want to see more. That is what my website is all about – Sharing my artwork and giving collectors from all over the world the opportunity to own it. This is something that a brick-and-mortar gallery cannot do being in one fixed location.
Another consideration to buy my artwork is that it is increasing in value with each passing year as more collectors buy my work. You will receive a signed Certificate of Authenticity with each work to assure not only that it is an original work but also to protect your investment in my art.
So let me ask you – Why would you want bland, boring, uninspired “wall decor” just to cover some wall space when you can have original fine abstract artworks to enjoy and motivate you each day?
Buying art from the shop
You can easily purchase my work directly on my site in the SHOP.
I recommend that you navigate the shop using the size menu if you have a specific size in mind. I have works in all sizes from 16 x 20 inches (they really give life to a dull wall and brighten up any room instantly) to huge works. I can also make commissions to your exact specifications.
I also recommend using the Wish List as you explore the SHOP.
You can easily come back to the site and go directly to your wish list the next time – all of your favorites will be SAVED for you to view later!
You can easily and securely check out after adding an artwork to the cart. All major credit and debit cards are accepted and your order is placed instantly. I get an email and I ship your artwork directly to you! You will be contacted with tracking information.
I will be with you all the way from the moment you purchase a painting and I monitor the travel of the work along its journey from the studio to your doorstep! – Lee

"Make an Offer" on a painting
You might have visited a gallery and made an offer on a work. Now you can do the same thing in my shop!
It is well know that galleries will work with collectors in securing a work they want. Being an independent artist allows the ability of offer the same flexibility.
See something you like – Make an offer on that painting! Simply click the “Make an offer” button and fill out the form. It is as easy as that!
You will receive a reply within 24 hours (some offers are automatically accepted) so watch for the email in your inbox!

Can your work be returned?
Yes! I want you to be excited and totally happy with the art you purchase from me!
I offer a 7 day return policy. Returns are rare as I strive to accurately represent my artwork as they appear in person, since it is impossible to know for certain what any painting will look like in your particular setting until you have it in your possession. This is just part of buying art (or anything really) online.
I do kindly request that you contact me prior to shipping the artwork so that I can assure that there is not an alternative solution (such as a different work) that might fit your needs better. The bottom line is that I want you to be thrilled with my artwork and enjoy it for a lifetime! (Please note that the collector is responsible for the cost of return postage and insurance).
I noticed "unstretched" canvases - What does that mean?
If the work is un-stretched or on loose canvas it refers to a painting that is not mounted on “stretcher bars” – the wooden framework the canvas is on – not a frame – which is on the outside of the painting already stretched. (Some are and it is stated in the artwork description). This is a canvas that is hand cut from a large roll of canvas which allows the artist to cut the exact size he wishes to work with for that painting.
These works are created on a high quality loose canvas that is hand cut by the artist himself and shipped rolled in a tube. What you do after you receive the work is to simply take it to your local framer to have it mounted. Since it is loose canvas there are an infinite variety of framing methods. Simply pick the one that is best suited from the intended installation area. Once you receive the canvas you simply take it to be stretched or mounted on stretcher bars. It is then ready to hang or you might want to have it framed at the same time.
There are several advantages to unstretched canvas. For one it is easier to ship with less chance of damage as it is shipped rolled in a heavy duty tube. This makes the cost a fraction of the stretched canvas…this is especially true when shipping internationally as many of Nestor’s works are quite large and not practical to send stretched.
If you would prefer to have your artwork arrive stretched and “Ready to Hang” please contact me. I can have it done for you.
Contact for options and pricing as these vary by size and delivery destination. Lee
Distant viewing of artworks prior to purchase via FaceTime
If you would like to see a work prior to purchasing it I can arrange a mutually agreeable time for a FaceTime viewing of those works!
If you are out of the country or simply not in Los Angeles you can see works that you are interested in. Simply contact via email or the contact form of the site that you are interested and which works you would like to view.
I will see that the artwork is pulled from storage and available for viewing. We have daylight balanced studio lighting so you will see the absolute accurate true color of the work. It is also possible to show you details of the work.
Hope to hear from you soon!
I am going to be in Los Angeles - Can I visit your studio?
YES – I love to have collector’s view my artwork in person!
You are very welcome to stop by and view my artwork in person which is really the ideal way to fully appreciate and experience the detail of the work. If you live in the L.A. area OR are planning a trip to L.A. be sure to contact me so that I can plan a day and time to show you some amazing art. (FaceTime meetings are also an option for viewings)
Please use the contact form to set an appointment for your visit.
Commissions are done when you need a special work made specifically for you. Whether it is that you have a specific place and you want a piece that fits just right. Perhaps you saw one of my works that you love but it’s not the right size for your space. You might even see a work that is sold and you want something similar just for you. All of those are reasons for a commissioned piece.
My favorite and most often done commission is for someone who loves my overall body of work and wants me to create a work for them. Usually I am given a general idea of which of my styles they enjoy and a color palette to work with and let me have at it! As you can see all of my works are unique and there are never two that are identical – that’s not my style.
How it works: You contact me and tell me what you need. I will reply back to you and find out exact information such as the measurements and once I know that I will tell you how much it would cost to create. We will discuss exactly what you have in mind. Lee and I will discuss every detail with you until you are totally comfortable with the process and are excited about experiencing it!
I do provide a contract with specifics what covers all the basics such as payment/delivery etc. I also ask for a (non-refundable) down payment of 35% of the commission price be made to start. The balance is due once the work is completed and prior to shipping. The work will then be shipped to you rolled or stretched depending on what was agreed upon and is most practical for your location (I ship all over the world) and the for the safety of the work.
NOTE: Free shipping (when offered) applies to domestic (USA) delivery. International delivery varies by country/region.
Use the contact form at the bottom of the page which sends me an email immediately and you will be contacted within 24 hours!
Your privacy is assured. I never share your information so it is 100% safe and secure. I never give out/sale information to a 3rd party so you have nothing to fear!
Who is Lee?
Lee is my partner of 23 years, business manager and my biggest “fan”. You will most likely communicate with him about the business aspects of my artwork as he deals with the financial details such as negotiating international transactions, press and media requests, and most correspondence.
He assists in the studio and also coordinates the logistics of shipping the hundreds of my sold artwork around the world. As a photographer and web designer he created and maintains all of my websites. Being an admitted “computer nerd” he also keeps our network and computers up and running, deals with any “emergencies” (coffee and Mac Books do not mix well) and other technical issues. Together we make a great team!
