New Interview – VoyageLA Online Magazine – “LA’s Most Inspiring Stories”

I was contacted by Voyage LA which is an amazing “online magazine” for all the best of Los Angeles and they wanted to interview me. It is always rewarding to be interviewed and to share my journey becoming an artist. I really think that reading interviews gives insight into the creative process and that people are interested in knowing these things. Nestor Toro – Los Angeles

Large Statement Work – Nestor Toro – In The Wilderness

Nothing makes a statement like a large canvas! It can completely bring an entire room together and this is such a piece. It is called In The Wilderness and is certainly a such a painting! I had a great time painting it and I can’t wait for it to grace a collector’s home! This is a great piece for anyone who likes my more active style and the colors are really fantastic…I could not be happier with the way it came out and I am sure whoever acquires this work will never become bored with the intricate details in the massive work!  Nestor Toro – Abstract Artist – Los Angeles

Sold Art – Nestor Toro

Here is the latest artwork “Through The Old Lens – Cliffs” that has already been sent out to the collector but I wanted to show you what it looks like. The painting is 16″ x 20″ which might not sound very large but as you can see in the picture of me holding it that it actually makes a BIG statement…especially since I send my 16″ x 20″ works framed as you can see here. The frame is metal with a brushed finish which enhances but doesn’t overpower the work. In fact, it arrives framed so you can take it directly from the box and hang it on your wall!

Color Field Works

One of the style of painting that I enjoy is color fields. Many underestimate this style of abstract feeling that it is too simple and prefer other styles. As an abstract painter who paints in a number of different styles I must disagree with this. Not only is technique required but even more vital is an eye for color. How they interact, how they blend together, and ultimately how they look on the canvas! I have put together a collection of one of the galleries that represent my work online Saatchi Art, a comprehensive listing of the color field works I currently have for sale.

You can see an example of one of my works using the color field technique/style which was recently sold. This is just one example of my color field works and if you would like to view the entire collection of my work in a variety of sizes (some with frames) and of course, and nearly infinite color range then CLICK HERE to go to view that collection on Saatchi Art Online Gallery with the Nestor Toro fine art abstracts.

The world really needs art, especially in these times we live in. Art elevates the human spirit to higher levels and takes us further to our potential. Owning an intellectually stimulating work can really enhance your home or office or simply provide a contemplate image to look at for creativity or to get lost in for relaxation!

I hope that you will check out my work and join the other collectors in over 5 continents and countries like Japan, United States, Canada, Argentina, Spain, Great Britain, Ireland, Italy, France and Australia just to name a few! You are sure to find something that moves you, something that motivates you, something that you want to own and enjoy in your home each day.
