Tim Tolkien (September 1962–) is an English sculptor.
- Public Art has a very different job to do than that of gallery pieces. They need to be acceptable to the wider community, often designed through public consultation, and they need to have a sense of place- ie ‘belong’ in some way to the space they occupy and the community that uses othat place, be it a school, a main round-about or a public open space. I have often been asked to produce artworks that recognise or commemorate iconic people or significant occasions. This is always a special duty and a privilege.
