SOLD – Infinity Stream by Nestor Toro

I am really pleased to announce that a collector named David from Georgia has purchased 3 of my works! The first is Infinity Stream which as you can see is a bold work with gestural movements coexisting with intricate details creating a rich relationship with each other resulting in a work that is both dynamic and tranquil at the same time! 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. This is not as easy as one would think.

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.

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
