About

Broad brushstrokes in midnight black form an angled shape on white in this bold composition by Tim Forbes. After completing studies at the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, Tim Forbes established a graphic design studio and relocated to Toronto, ON. Over the years, his corporate clients have included the Body Shop, Rogers, Rolls Royce and the One-of-a-Kind Show for which he created the thumbprint logo – his own thumbprint. Forbes sculptural work is rooted in gesture: he is able to translate calligraphic swirls and marks on paper into three dimensional sculptures in a variety of media. Forbes has exhibited across Ontario, in Vancouver and New York. His work is held in private and corporate collections. Recent commissions include Leloop, a stainless steel sculpture for Daniel Libeskind’s Toronto L Tower and Power created for a terrace in the Hariri Pontarini-designed Massey Tower for MOD Developments, Toronto. Cloud, a large porcelain white sculpture engineered to float in a pool on the rooftop terrace of The Art Shoppe condo complex, Toronto. In his paintings, Forbes explores the same use of gesture exhibited in his sculptures but in black with hints of color on white canvas.
