NEW YORK -- (February, 2011) -- Organizers of New York City’s premier design event, The Architectural Digest Home Design Show, confirmed that selections from HUMAN: a suite of distinctive, sensuous sculptures by Canadian sculptor and artist Tim Forbes --will be showcased and on offer in the MADE section of the fair. 


Entry into the invitation-only MADE exhibition marks an occasion to present Forbes portfolio of taut, passionate formations to an audience of discerning collectors, designers, architects and art and lifestyle enthusiasts in New York City.


Commenting on Forbes entry into the coveted New York City design event, Director, Troy Hanson commented,  “The Architectural Digest Design Home Show is pleased to count the fresh, unorthodox artistry of Tim Forbes among the many skilled artists and designers exhibiting in the MADE section this year.  Forbes portfolio of sculptures brings into context the line between design and high art”.


Forbes’ transformation from a pre-eminent communication designer to one of Canada's exciting contemporary artists and sculptors took form quietly over several years.  A prolific and respected talent, Forbes has been consistently recognized for delivering award-winning creatives to an A-list of international clients - from Royal commissions, to film and television studios and a Who’s Who of law firms, corporations and organizations. 


Following a period of private introspection, Tim Forbes began to fully express his creative passion – unfurling a body of opulent three-dimensional sculptures, which he brings to life in carved resin, chroma-fiberglass and cast bronze -accompanied by equally compelling art work which reflects the sculptures energy.


In 2009, global art insurance specialist, AXA Art presented Forbes dynamic portfolio HUMAN to international collectors in attendance at Canada’s premier art market event, Art Toronto.  AXA Art’s lead representative in Canada, Ann Louise Seago, cited the warmth and distinction of Forbes’ body of work for its selection.


The Architectural Design Home Show attracts approximately 30,000 design professionals, enthusiasts, art collectors and home owners to its signature event yearly.  For further information visit
