Nova Scotia artist Tim Forbes works in multiple mediums as a designer, painter, photographer and sculptor. This dynamic cast fibreglass sculpture is coated in monochrome bronze gloss that takes on an organic form as it balloons and twists from its base.This work was exhibited in Art Toronto and in New York at the Architectural Digest Design Show. “In sculpture I work in maquette forms, small scale models in clay or metal that are then scaled proportionally using state-of-the art technology. I then rely on a team to realize the fabrication of large-scale works in resin, fiberglass, bronze, or steel.” - Forbes In the 1970’s he attended the Nova Scotia School of Art and Design (NSCAD). Moving to Toronto in 1978 he launched an award-winning design company and worked with an astounding range of clients including the government, Canada’s leading law firms, the performing arts and the film and television industry. Among the myriad of projects Forbes has undertaken, he is perhaps best known internationally for the original One-of-a-Kind Show logo, which is his own thumbprint. After sharing studio time between Toronto and his native Nova Scotia for many years, Forbes set up a permanent studio in Blue Rocks Nova Scotia in 2019.
