SOLD – Forest Deep 2 by L.A. Artist – Nestor Toro

I was contacted by a collector about “Forest Deep 2” and wanted to come to the studio to see it so we set a time for the viewing. They had seen the work online and fell in love with it. It is the second in the “Forest Deep” series. Both of the works proved to be well received and ultimately sold to collectors. So thank you for responding to my pure abstractions!

Layers of color blending and many changes happened before this piece was completed. I wanted to accomplish a complex combination of iridescent effects, texturing and depth. Drips of clear tar gel layers applied overtime create a rich texture to the painting making all bright iridescent and interference colors come to life harmoniously. High quality Golden and Sennelier acrylics used. UV protected. Bold and strong iridescent statement piece.

I hope that you will enjoy this in your place in San Francisco and it will bring you years of pleasure!

Thank you! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles – Abstract Art

SOLD – Ocean Particles – Abstract Art by Nestor Toro

Another work purchased! This is the 3rd work purchased by the couple who purchased Terra  Verde and Los Angeles Fantasy! I call this work Ocean Particles and it is 40″ x 30″ inches. As you can see it fits into their decor perfectly just like the work Los Angeles Fantasy and really brings color to the area. The complex layers of color give depth to the work making it a visual feast for the eyes!

Vibrant warm colors abstract landscape colorfield. Beautiful colours blend with iridescent mediums for a striking effect. This painting was completed using spatulas instead of brushes, this gives a very smooth and even texture to the piece. This painting is very iridescent with Orange, purple and blue iridescent hues.

Thank you very much for collecting my original abstract art! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles – Abstract Artist

It really looks amazing framed by the recessed area. The patterned background looks almost electric with the vertical movement contrasting with the horizontal motion of the artwork making the entire visual experience more interesting and the neutral tones allowing the color to provide the illusion of movement and energy radiating from the area. Again – STUNNING

SOLD – Terra Verde – Forest Deep by L.A. Abstract Artist – Nestor Toro

I was contacted by a couple in my very own town of Los Angeles who recently bought their dream home and wanted some fantastic original abstracts to give it some color and I am honored that they chose me as their primary artist. They arranged a studio visit to see the artwork in person and bought 3 works…the first is this one – Terra Verde – Forest Deep. This work is a large statement work and by that I mean a work that not only “makes a statement” but is also the dominant focal point in the room it hangs. It brings color and movement and can set the tone of the entire room…hence the term.

This work is a large work that I created on hand cut heavy canvas which I also hand primed with a triple layer of gesso for a nice solid base. I then used a palette knife to create large gestural motions which capture movement as you can see below. The work was rolled and stored until it was purchased by the collectors and was then stretched for hanginging in their lovely home!

Of course once the artwork is stretched and hanging in place it looks amazing and becomes the STATEMENT work it was always meant to be and is now gracing this wonderful room in Long Beach and being enjoyed by these wonderful collectors! Thank you so much! Nestor Toro – Los Angeles – Abstract Art

This really illustrates how an artwork can make a room! The deep blue of the furniture…the green of the foliage outside the window…even the golden glow of the lamp and the yellow in the work!

Perfect harmony and balance. So pleasing to the eye to have these organic colors all come together in the artwork – STUNNING

I started this piece with the idea of a large centerpiece contrasting with a vibrant and bold yellow and orange background. While molding the paint and mediums using palette knives all the organic motion filled shapes were created, layer after layer. The many shades of blue from light blue to dark indigo blended with white and purple on each layer make this painting a great energy filled composition and one meant to the statement piece of a great room!

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. Comes with hardware and ready to hang.

SOLD – Underwater Colorfield – L.A. Abstract Art

As an artist you put your heart and soul into your work…that is why people respond to it…especially abstracts. This work is one of my partners favorite works. He really considered not selling it and keeping it but well…I am not a fan of the “starving artist” myth and I am rather happy that collectors like my work enough to pay for it so I convinced him that this was what I do…paint for the love and passion of it but also for a living!

I am pleased to post that Underwater Colorfield has been sold to a collector in the United Kingdom and is on its way across the Atlantic to that very destination. Thank you! Nestor Toro Los Angeles abstract artist
