I am please to inform all my blog readers that I have sold my work Forest in Blue to a collector in Minnesota. This is actually my first work going to that state so thank you Ellen! This work is a great example of painting with a palette knife with big bold strokes giving the […]
All of my series are special but some are based on concepts and some on personal experiences. I would like to thank Jordan from Florida for being a patron of my art. He has acquired this work called The Next Room which is 1 of 9 works from a series called “9.5 Hours”. The work measures 20 x 20 inches and is hand stretched canvas. The entire series (including this painting) have been show in Los Angeles at the Fold Gallery. Thank you very much! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles

This is a 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.

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
Sometimes a small work will make a BIG statement and this wonderful work is one of them. This work was sold via Saatchi online gallery. It is 10 x 10 inches but has thick 1.5 inch sides so it is ready to hang. Deep edge square painting with amazing texture and depth. For this series of 10 by 10 inches canvas, I used very large brushes for the initial details with plaster, then palette knifes for an even yet rough finish. Very contemplative bright hues and small light specs coming through. High acrylics and mediums to help with color blending.
Small works such as this can really bring life to a wall space, an office, or any place that could use a bit of color!
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
This piece features deep red and golden spatters – full of dynamic drips, bold paint strokes and very glossy. Recently I retouch all the colors with gloss enamel to make them even more vibrant. I love that this piece is full of bold paint splatters, ink drips and brush details. The focus was texture, color and a composition with energy and movement. High grade Golden acrylics and Windsor and newton inks over triple primed lose canvas.
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
