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.

    Loving Sabi’s technique and hues. whilst i love some cheap and cheerful art (mass produced) there is nothing more delightful than an artwork that has been crafted by the heart

    I love that the artwork is bold, yet calming. In particular, Morning After reminds me of my beloved 80s cartoons, especially Jem and the Holograms! It’s nostalgic and modern (for me).

    I love original art – especially paintings! I am not a fan of mass produced art at all – the closest I have are limited edition prints of original art (I like knowing mine is #11 of only 50) this painting by Sabi is so vibrant – and I am a huge fan of colour!! It is bring vibrant art like this that means I can add pops of colour to my predominately neutral lounge room.

    There’s something about great art like hje piece by Sabi above, that for me is like a great piece of music. It makes you feel something. I can only imagine how great the night before must have been if this is the morning after! I would love to see that every day and smile.

    I love how vibrant and colourful the paintings are. We have a colourful living room and sometimes find it hard to find something fun to put on the walls as everything in the shops seems a bit dull! This piece would be perfect as it matches the colours we already have in there! ❤

    I feel that Sabi’s art has a very romantic feel to it, the brush strokes telling a story with each piece. I love the bold colours used, they are balanced beautifully drawing the eye in – really making a statement.

    I have been wanting to get some art for my unit and wasn’t sure what direction to go in, these pieces aren’t what have thought of but I love everything I saw on Sabi’s website – so so beautiful. Even if I don’t win I am so glad you have introduced me to such an amazing artist!! It’s a win win already 🙂

    This is such an amazing piece! I love Sabi’s attitude to the creative process – the way she describes letting a painting come organically to life without planning is very inspiring. I love that a 100 people could see this piece and everyone will see something different – its one of a kind in more ways than one! The colours are amazing.

    I am completely in love with Sabi’s works, especially the Spring Rain series. I recently organised one of the series as a gift for my sister-in-law’s 40th birthday and although I visit her home almost daily, I never tire of looking at it. The colours she uses are beautiful and take me to my happy place! I love the pinks and blues she uses in the Spring Rain series. They are just stunning.

    This sabi artwork is stunning. Visually clever and intriguing, as the longer you look at it the story it invokes changes. To me first glance the bright pink plumes are like soft flowers, look again perhaps I see flamingos by the water, again ladies in pink. This piece of Sabi’s will speak to many people due to this quality, as well as b KGB able to slide into different interior home styles.

    The colours in Sabi’s painting almost vibrate and seem to jump off the canvas. I adore more abstract art as you are forever seeing new shapes and forms evolve. From a distance this painting makes me think of flamingos standing in brilliant blue water while the sun sets…just glorious!

    Being a painter myself, I can fully understand the zen mode that’s involved with painting. But I have never been able to do let go and create abstract art! What I love the most is the individual style that comes through and Sabi’s certainly got a fabulous, free style.

    Wow there is so much to love about her artwork – how do I narrow it down?! I love that each piece feels so cohesive and yet so individual. I also love that each person can look at a piece of her work and see something different in it. I love that the same person can look at the same painting on a different day, and see something new in it.

    Thanks for introducing me to Sabi and her artwork. I’ll definitely head over and follow her on instagram.. firstly because her artwork looks divine!! Secondly, not owning an original/high quality piece of art is something I dream of. Having little kids, a self employed business and being in the depths of a whole house Reno means big ticket items are on the back burner just now and lastly… I love a successful underdog. Not being formally trained and creating such beautiful art means true talent to me.
    Cheers.
