Saatchi Art – “New This Week” – July 8th 2019

It is always exciting to be acknowledged for an achievement and no more so than for an artist like myself. The art world is a very competitive place and the internet has made that competition explode! It is now possible for every artist on the planet to have a presence online. Even though this has allowed more and more artist’s work to be shown it has always created an environment of such sheer volume that is difficult to find good art with literally millions of works listed online!

“This is why once again I am pleased, thrilled and honored to have one of my works chosen to grace the FRONT COVER of the world’s largest and online gallery of fine art Saatchi Art!”

This is why once again I am pleased, thrilled and honored to have one of my works chosen to grace the front cover of the world’s largest and online gallery of fine art Saatchi Art! One of my works was hand chosen by the Saatchi head curator Rebecca Wilson for inclusion in her prestigious “New This Week” July 8th 2019 collection! In her weekly collection Rebecca curates the best of the best and this is the 3rd time I have had the honor!

The work that Rebecca chose is entitled Fugitive Imagination. It was painted in June 2019 and was done using several of my signature techniques as you can see here.

 

Here are the other times (3 times so far) that I was included in the head curator’s collections this year!

I was featured in January 21st 2019 with my work so I happy to announce that one of my recent work titled “Just Like Thunder” was included in the Saatchi “New This Week” for 1-21-2019 collection by Saatchi’s chief curator Rebecca Wilson!

The second time this year was in March! It’s well known that Saatchi Art is the number 1 online gallery in the world and once again one of my works was chosen to be included in the Saatchi Art’s chief curator Rebecca Wilson‘s prestigious weekly “New This Week 3-11-2019” collection! Thank you very much Rebecca!

Nestor Toro’s Studio Floor and Shoes

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

Finished Commission!!

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.

SOLD – Make Believe (with Pink Glasses)

I want to share this painting as it is part of a large commission for a collector in India that I am currently working on…a massive project of 13 works! This is a challenge and will take a lot of mental energy but being a seasoned professional I am certainly up to the task and will be updating my blog with additional work from this project from time to time as I am going to concentrate on it now that the busy holiday season is gone and we are into a new year! Thank you – Nestor Toro L.A. 2018

Did You Know – “Pure Abstractions”

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
