Saatchi Art’s – New This Week Collection – January 13, 2020 – Nestor Toro’s work – AquaGreen Spectra) Translucent Forest! You can check this work out here in my shop. 2020 is starting off strong and I am expecting the most active year to date with such strong interest in my work! One of my works was chosen as the Best of the Year for 2019

BOTH Saatchi Art Best of Year AND Pantone Color of the Year Collections!

What a great way to start 2020!

Having sold hundreds of abstract expressionist paintings – which can be found in private collections all over the world on 5 continents and 25 plus countries – I can tell you that I am honored knowing that my art resonates with such a variety of people. I have sold works directly to young professionals who are just starting their collections and told me that they are “finally ready for some art.” I have had seasoned collectors contact me directly as well to inquire about my work. I recall one Japanese college student who purchase a work for her room. I have done the artwork for entire homes (I will have a posting on that shortly) with 15 commissioned works! I have done huge commissions for lofts and Hollywood hills homes…this is just a tiny fraction of the varied collectors Lee and I have worked with.

This however is a new first for me – Saatchi Art’s Best Of The Year for 2019. This collection was curated by Saatchi Art Assistant curator Aurora Garrison. Thank you very much Aurora for adding my work to this collection. This is a very important collection as there are literally hundreds of thousands of works on the Saatchi Art website and just 109 works included so I am in fine company.

Thank you very much Megan, it is an honor to be included the collection of just 90 works!

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

WOW!

This month has flown by so quickly and I would like to thank each of the wonderful collectors who have recently purchased my work and to all those who have collected my work this year (and in years gone bye)! I have been shipping art out everyday this month! Wonderful to know that so many are giving the gift of fine art to someone they love – even if that someone is themselves!

I had the privilege of working with some of the Saatchi Art team at the headquarters in Santa Monica. This was on December 19th and I was there being filmed painting a couple of works. Look for me online at Saatchi Art. Oh and that after my work had been not only featured in the head curator’s New This Week but I was also honored to have had my work included in the printed Saatchi Art 2019 Holiday catalog.

I have many events in the works for 2020 including attending The Other Art Fair in a different city than my home city of Los Angeles ( I had a show there in 2018 ) so watch for news about that some and perhaps I will be close to you. If so that would be great to meet you! You can also view some of my artwork in person as photographs can not really do a painting (mine or anyone’s) justice.

Well I have to get back to it…just a few more days until Christmas and on to the New Year!!

HAPPY  HOLIDAYS!

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!”

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.

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
