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.”

Artist Info:
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.
