Signing The Work

It is always satisfying to sign a work! It is the final touch to complete the work. I have been asked about my signature. If you look closely you can see it is my last name which is Toro. In Spanish “Toro” means bull and I have incorporated a stylized image of a bull in my distinctive signature!

About my work:
“I am an abstract artist. My hope is that my work will transport the viewer each time they experience them and be taken to a mental landscape of contemplation. One of my biggest influences is travel. Travel opens up your mind and frees the imagination to new experiences. Getting lost in a huge city and exploring. Nature and organic movement such as smoke, water, magnetic fields, even the global migration of animals and the way birds and fish move in unison influence me. Chaos theory and time itself are all influences on my mental process when working on a painting. The dichotomy of randomness and order existing at the same moment are what I try to capture and yet with a complexity that must be there because nothing is really absolute black and white. To view the world in that way is too easy and convenient and as a result too limiting. I create artwork outside the range of most and I explore that grey area that usually goes unnoticed.”

Artist Info:
Nestor’s art was exhibited numerous times in Buenos Aires at exhibitions, galleries, and other venues during the six years he was living in Argentina (2006 – 2012) there. He sold many pieces to private collectors in Buenos Aires. Now back in Los Angeles, Nestor’s unique abstract artwork is being added to more and more contemporary fine art collections. A recognized emerging artist in Los Angeles, his paintings are in private collections on 5 continents and countries including Italy, Japan, Spain, Canada, USA, Argentina, Great Britain, Germany, Australia, and France.

Artist’s description:

All of my paintings start with big bold strokes of many colors. I love creating those first layers, building up into a complex combination of shapes, colors and patters. This piece was made using palette knives and rubber spatulas then drizzled with endless amounts of clear string gel, swirling layer after layer to create the finishing texture, which is very striking. This piece is very iridescent, bright and uplifting.
