The thousand faces of Sabine Timm
Sabine Timm is a German illustrator that creates her own world with its own sense of humour and meaning.
Sabine Timm is an artist who uses little things and huge bags of imagination to create delightful art is to us a hero. Based in Dusseldorf she picks little abandoned things on the beach and daily objects and turns them into exquisite scenes and characters.
“I think my love for abandoned little things started in my childhood. At the time, I didn’t know you could call this art but I just loved collecting pieces of broken porcelain and arrange them into scenes, like in a Museum of Archaeology.”
Inspired by nature and daily life, her pictures are little narratives which she has created in her tiny sketch-books and in her stage-like three dimensional scenes.
“It’s always so exciting as you never know which treasures you might find. It makes me so happy seeing all these colourful, sun bleached, forgotten and damaged things by my feet, because with them, the creative possibilities are endless.”
We find her daily posts on Instagram a never-ending source of inspiration, as she proves time and time again that there is creativity all around us and it doesn’t have to cost a penny.
Who knew daily objects and furnishings could be so fun?
