SOLD – Verdor / Distant

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

SOLD – Summer of Love by Nestor Toro

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.

 

 

Why not browse the collection and see if you find a piece that “speaks” to you?

SOLD – Green Abstract Dimension by Nestor Toro

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

Collector Studio Visit – Los Angeles

I am used to selling art all over the world thanks to the internet allowing me to be exposed to a larger number of people than I could ever be seen by in a physical gallery so it’s always great to meet people in “real life”! I was contacted by a collector visiting Los Angeles on business and had seen my work online. This was an opportunity to view the artwork in person and ask questions. Lee and I showed him a ton of work – another perk of visiting – and he ended up buying 6 painting. I have “warned” you guys before that studio visits usually end up with you buying even more than you intended because my work really needs to be seen in person to be fully appreciated.
