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

Nestor Toro Shipping Artwork to Collectors

Today was a nice sunny spring day here in West Hollywood so it was a pleasant walk to the UPS store to send out a couple of paintings to collectors. One is heading to England and the other is on its way to Germany. My artwork is private collections on 5 continents and over 20 countries. I think that I need to sit down with a globe and make a list of where I have artwork don’t you! Nestor Toro – 2019 – Los Angeles

I am really pleased to announce that a collector named David from Georgia has purchased 3 of my works!

If you are familiar with my artwork (and if not please check out the shop) you know that I paint with no preconceived outcome in mind – I am an artist and I let the image develop as I go.

SOLD – Burning Wood by Nestor Toro

This work is a triptych made of 3 20 x 16 inch canvases. I call it Burning Wood and the colors and the movement captured are reminiscent of a fireplace. I always find sitting in front of fire and watching the flames dance around with the ever changing light patterns putting on a show. This work has the same feel for me hence the name. It is now in New York with Roberto. Thank you very much for collecting my art – Nestor Toro – Los Angeles

Contemplative piece with great depth and organic shapes. Most of the colors are the result of color blending using acrylic mediums. This multi canvas work is truly a statement piece. I had a great time working on this painting!!! This is a multi panel artwork each canvas is 16*20 inches.
