American artist Nestor Toro (b. 1976) is an internationally collected abstract painter known for his BOLD use of color and complex layering blending chaos and harmony to create works that are in private collections on 5 continents and over 35 countries. Nestor is inspired by nature and the inter-connectivity of all things.
Nestor Toro is an abstract painter working and living in Los Angeles. He has developed his unique techniques over the years during which he is continuously innovating to create works with emphasis on bold color combinations, blending, and a gestural style.
Nestor creates each work with no preconceived outcome in mind, preferring to let the technique guide him in creating complex paintings. Working primarily with fluid acrylics along with other mediums, he creates intricate works that lure the viewer in with the complexities of the bold color, pattern, and movement.
Nestor’s abstract style allows the viewer to experience the artwork through the color combinations, brush strokes, and other gestural techniques. Nestor’s artwork is intended to be a visual experience which evoke a feeling of transport from the viewer.
Nestor's extensive world travels have changed his perspective and provide inspiration to create artworks that do the same for the viewer - elicit the feeling of perception shift that is unique emotionally and intellectually giving each viewer a different personal experience.
I am proudly self-taught having discovered my love of painting while living in Buenos Aires. I experimented with various mediums learning what they could do and developing my own techniques that give my work a unique quality.
Developing my own style totally without the influence (and sometimes restrictions) of formal training I have no fear of taking my work in any direction I am motivated toward.
That creative freedom combined with my unique use of the materials allow me to create artwork that is distinctly my voice.
