Nestor Toro

Nestor Toro

Born: 1976

Hometown: Los Angeles

Based in: West Hollywood

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.

More About Nestor Toro

IconInspires

What inspires you?

One of my biggest influences is world travel. Travel opens up your mind and frees the imagination to new experiences. Getting lost in a huge city, exploring and finding things you would never find without starting be lost. Nature and organic patterns influence me.

Joan Mitchell, Gerhard Richter, Mark Rothko, Monet, Wassily Kandinsky and Tori Amos!

IconTool

What is the most important tool when creating your work?

I use a large pallete knife to spread the gesso and paint. I really don't use brushes much at all.

IconGive

What is the best piece of advice you have been given?

The best advice I have been given is to paint every single day and to always remain true to my own voice and vision. Never follow trends as that is just copying what had already been done.

IconLightbulb

Where do you go for inspiration?

I love to travel and I especially enjoy exploring new countries such as India (where I did a whole house of 16 paintings) and most recently a trip to Hong Kong and Japan. Travel allows me to see things from a new prespective and then in the studio I am renewed with ideas and inspiration!
