SOLD – Coming to light I (2016) by Nestor Toro

I am pleased to announce that a collector from San Francisco California has acquired one of my latest works entitled “Coming to Light l” It is a bold statement piece that was made over the period of time which give it a feeling of time and yet the balancing elements are quite gestural and spontaneous as a juxtaposition of time captured and interwoven within the space of a 36″ x 46″ inch canvas. Thank you for inviting my work into your home – I am honored. Nestor Toro

SOLD – Orange Spectrum by Nestor Toro

I am very excited to have yet another collector in Victoria, Australia! I know that there is so much art out there that I am always honored when someone goes the “extra mile” pun intended to acquire one of my paintings! You have no idea how rewarding it is to know that I am not simply wasting my time doing what I do but that it is appreciated enough for someone in a far off country around the world would seek it out and by moved enough to want to own it to enjoy each day is just magical and makes it all worth while to me! Thank you again!

Artist’s description:

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 drizzled with endless amounts of clear string gel, swirling layer after layer to create the finishing texture, which is very striking. This piece is very iridescent, bright and uplifting.

Additional Info:  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.

Artist’s description:
Bold paint strokes, layered effects, fast color shifts and organic shapes. For this piece I did lots of color blending with rubber spatulas, placed layers of transparent paint to create a lot of depth and completed with a gloss “Curtain” on top to make the painting change colors and have intricate patters and motion. High Golden acrylics and IV protective gloss enamel.
Was painted on landscape but it looks beautiful on different orientations. See the pictures for details. Looks amazing in both orientations.
