Toor offers intimate views into the imagined lives of young, queer Brown men residing between New York City and South Asia. Recurring color palettes and references to art history heighten the emotional impact of Toor's paintings and add a fantastical element to his narratives drawn from lived experience. Taken as a whole, Toor's paintings consider vulnerability within contemporary public and private life and the notion of community in the context of queer, diasporic identity.
