About Grace AP

Tim Forbes's bronze sculpture has the graceful curves of a human figure and almost appears to breathe. ‘Grace’ was later enlarged and re-named ‘Nude.’ Only one copy was made. “I vividly remember a sculpture I did when I was eight…and have been waiting to get back to it ever since.” Tim Forbes A young Forbes established a graphic design studio in Halifax after attending the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design. He soon moved to Toronto. Over the years, his corporate clients have included a prestigious list--the Body Shop, Rogers, and Rolls Royce. As part of a redesign of the flagship hotel for the exclusive Ritz-Carlton Hotel chain, Forbes created more than 40 original pieces including several paintings. Other recent Toronto commissions include "Leloop," a stainless-steel sculpture for Daniel Libeskind’s Toronto L Tower, "Power" created for a terrace in the Hariri Pontarini-designed Massey Tower and “Cloud," a large porcelain white sculpture engineered to float in a pool on the rooftop terrace of The Art Shoppe condo. In 2021, as part of the $200M Queen’s Marque waterfront development in Halifax, a commission for Nova Scotia’s first 5-star hotel, Marriott’s Muir, saw the creation of “Sentinels and Boats” –– a series of photo-based portraits of the rugged Atlantic shoreline. In recent years, Forbes returned to his roots relocating his studios to the solace of Nova Scotia’s south shore. Forbes’s work is held in many private and corporate collections.
