They have a saying “manic Monday” and around here it usually is just that! Here I have artwork going to New York, Boston, and Germany! How exciting knowing that my work is all over the world and being enjoyed each day by wonderful collectors world wide! It’s also really wonderful to hear back from them when the artwork arrives and they see it for the first time in person! I also enjoy receiving photos of the artwork once a collector has the painting hung in their home or office. Nestor Toro – Los Angeles
Very pleased to announce that a collector has purchased my work Like Thunder sold via Saatchi online gallery! I would like to thank Christine in New York City for purchasing this unique abstract painting! Thank you – Nestor Toro – Los Angeles 2018 Acrylic on Canvas One of a kind artwork Size: 44 x 24 inches […]
This is the second piece that David, the collector from Georgia acquired. The work is called Perhaps a Sunset and measures 20 x 16 inches. Contemplative color field painting with lots of color blending, contrast and fine details. Textured with many layers of plaster to prime the canvas then applied acrylic paint with spatulas and palette knives creating very organic textures and forms. High quality Sennelier and Golden Acrylics and glossy finish. Relief texture truly a statement piece. You can probably tell that I had fun making this work! Thank you David for collecting my work!
Although the work is one of my “smaller” works measuring 20 x 16 inches you can easily see that it is quite powerful. Many think that only a large statement work can have the energy like this but if you stop and think about it I am sure that you can think of many walls in your home or office that could really benefit with the addition of a work of this size! Brighten up the space…get a work to motivate, inspire, or simply take some time each day to enjoy the color and motion!
I am excited to announce that my work “Deconstructed Thoughts” has been sold via Saatchi gallery. This work will soon be in Santa Rosa and Rick will be enjoying it. – Thank you! Nestor Toro
This work is very vibrant and bold colorfield painting with great light and organic details. Textured with many layers of gesso to prime the canvas then applied high quality Sennelier and Goldern Acrylics and glossy finish. The size of the work is 36 x 48 inches.
It is of course thrilling to live in such a wonderful cradle of creativity Los Angeles and especially in West Hollywood aka “The Creative City” so it’s always great when I am contacted by someone in L.A. about my artwork. In this case we were literally neighbors BOTH living in WeHo. I am happy to announce that my work Verdor was acquired by Gregorio and his lovely wife and will be gracing their beautiful home!
Because they were local I hand delivered the canvas myself. It is always an added bonus to have the pleasure of meeting the collectors who connect enough with my work to purchase it to own. Thank you and enjoy the work! Nestor Toro
The work is contemplative, bright, vivid green with lots of texture. The focus was texture, color and a composition with energy and movement. High grade Golden acrylics. Signed. 2018 62 x 44 inches
I have a diverse range of styles and many of my regular collectors appreciate some of my more unique statement works and this is one such example. This work is called Summer of Love and another patron, Anne in Wimberely TX is now in her collection! Thank you very much – Nestor Toro
All of my painting start with big bold strokes of many colors. Love creating those first layers building up into a complex combination of shapes, colors and patters. This piece was made using palette knifes and rubber spatulas then drizzled endless amounts of clear string gel swirling layers after layers creating the finishing texture, which is very striking. High quality rich Golden gold, orange and blue iridescent mediums and UV protection. Statement piece.
triple primed canvas.
Vibrant and very detailed piece with bold color blending, lots of drips and big palette knife strokes…Pretty much everything I love in a painting!!! This painting conveys motion and energy as well as lots of light and fast changes in contrast. Has a very active summer feel and yet one can get lost in it!!! triple primed canvas and heavy layered with high quality Golden and Sennelier acrylics, ink and Liquitex spray paint, UV gloss protective spray. Contemplative statement piece.
I am thrilled to announce the sale of Green Abstract Dimension to a collector. This work is an acrylic abstract nature inspired color field mainly light green with beige and other contrasting colors, yellow, white and a bit of orange. Textured and layered with acrylics and mediums. Signed. 2018 Size: 24 x 41 A long vertical painting can fit almost anywhere and adds a very interesting visual with that organization so don’t be afraid to go with a long vertical painting. Remember that you are designing your own space and it is a reflection of you so don’t be afraid to be different!
Since I hand cut a lot of my canvases from HUGE sheets of canvas I can make almost any sized work and you will find those listed under the “loose canvas” page of the shop. I recommend checking that section for non-standard measurements so if you have a space that a standard canvas measurement will not fit into you might check and see what you can find as I have them in a full range of sizes and styles so you might just find the perfect piece of art! Thank you – Nestor Toro
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
