I’ve been absolutely smitten with Sabi Klein art ever since I discovered it on the blog a few years back.
What makes Sabi’s artworks so amazing is that they’re bright, bold and full of life. They’re the kind of pieces that make for great focal points in a space. And there’s nothing about them that suggests they’ll fade into the background.
It’s ‘talking point’ kind of art, come to think of it, and in today’s post I’m giving you the opportunity to win some of your own Sabi Klein art – valued at $650! You’re welcome 😉
Sabi Klein’s Spring Series
The eye-catching artwork you see in this post is called Morning After. It’s part of Sabi’s spring series and I find the colours in it so invigorating and joyous.
“I started this series a few years ago and love painting it,” Sabi tells me. “The colours just make me happy, and to me it’s all about the exciting possibilities of starting new chapters”.
Inspired by a variety of moments and moods from her everyday life, Sabi’s approach to each artwork is to let it develop organically without too much force.
“I never sketch an idea or pre plan it as it always feels too forced,” she explains. “I like to organically ‘play’ with the painting and let it almost create itself. The painting will change from day to day and each painting has many layers to it”.
Creating the Right Environment
Sabi paints her pieces from her home studio. It’s a fairly recent luxury for the Melbourne creative, who prior to moving houses a little while ago, was working out of a warehouse studio.
Sabi tells me that she’s been able to make the home studio the perfect space to unleash her creativity.
“I absolutely love it. This is where I feel I can be the most free, turn up the music, switch off the brain from everything going on around me and just paint. I lose track of time most days. For me, it’s about the energy in the room, it has to be right. I can’t even put into words how I know it’s right, it’s just a feeling in my gut”.
Sabi goes on to reveal that it’s music that gets her in the mood to create the most; setting the tone for her day and playing a large part in how her paintings turn out.
Original Art vs Mass Produced
With so many mass-produced artworks on the market now, it’s so great to see local artists putting in the hard yards to produce original pieces for clients.
“There is no other person in the world that owns that particular painting,” Sabi tells me, of the importance of making original works. “It’s a one of a kind – and that is why original paintings are so important and valued. I think if you are lucky enough to own at least one original painting in your life, then that is great.
Great indeed! I couldn’t agree more. I also love that Sabi is a self-taught artist, so her work is always evolving.
Win this Piece of Sabi Klein Art
