I am am an independent artist and as such I have my artwork for sale in many places including my own website. This is done for the main reason that the world is a big place and if my work was only in one gallery in one city how many people in the world would have the pleasure of seeing it and have the opportunity to buy it – very few. So I have my artwork online and one of the newest galleries that I am pleased to be showing my artwork is Singulart! They are a wonderful gallery based in Europe and although I have only been represented for a short time there I have already sold several works!
Enchanted Spectra 6 was sold today to a collector in Germany via Singulart. This work is 32 x 40 inches. Thank you very much and enjoy it! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles 2018
I am always excited to be working with a new interior designer as it is always rewarding to work with another creative individual especially when they are going to be integrating my artwork into their designs! Not only is it rewarding but also fun! I was recently contacted by a designer here in Los Angeles who is working on the interior design for a new condo in the Hollywood hills. This small work ( 16 x 20 ) was the first one chosen for the project. It is entitled Distant Fantasy Sunrise and is part of a very popular series I created earlier in the year.
I would like to thank Ashley whom I had the pleasure of having over to my studio space in West Hollywood and we discussed and looked at potential works for her project. I am very excited to be working with her and I will add more updates as the project progresses but here is the first work – Distant Fantasy Sunrise by Nestor Toro. Thank you!
The third work acquired by the collector in Georgia is entitled Shower The World With Blue. This work as so many of my work are is nature Inspired. The color combination I decided on is unique with lovely shades of blue, white and black backdrop. This work is done with gestural movements over a black […]
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!
Selling works all over the world is exciting and it’s always extra exciting when I sell my first work to a collector in a country (right now I am at around 27 countries)! This work Panorama Esmeralda is going to Malta! So this is the first work to that country! Those who know me or have read my biography know that I love travel and that travelling has been and is a part of my creative process and was instrumental in my motivation to start painting in the first place years back while living in Buenos Aires Argentina…thank you very much indeed – Nestor Toro
