I am excited to post that I have sold one of my very newest works to a collector. The work is called “A Place To Hide ll” by abstract artist Nestor Toro
- Acrylic painting, Canvas
- One of a kind artwork
- Size: 48 × 20 × 0.7 in / 48 × 20 in (actual image size)
- Signed certificate of authenticity
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 covered with iridescent clear purple paint. This is a Tryptic artwork, each canvas 20*16 inches making the painting 20*48 inches total.
All my artwork is on gallery quality heavy duty stretched and triple primed cotton canvas and ready to hang. I include a certificate of authenticity that lists the materials as well as when the painting was completed. Fine high quality materials such as Golden and Sennelier products are used and UV protective enamel for sunlight protection.
Each painting is carefully packed and padded for a safe delivery. Paintings shipped with a tracking number.
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.”
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.
