“My mission as an artist is to provoke imagination,” says large scale sculpture artist Bozena Happach.
Polish-born Canadian large scale sculpture artist, Bozena Happach started art when she was very young. She began drawing and creating small 3D forms that convinced her parents to enrol her in the school of arts. There, she met Elzbieta Szczodrowska – a sculptor perhaps best known for her work on the monument to “Solidarity” in Gdansk, Poland.
Elzbieta Szczodrowska became her teacher, took her under her wing then taught her different sculpture techniques, casting, and how to work on monumental sculptures. Throughout her years as an architect, Bozena continued practising and sculpting. In 1991, her project won a competition for “Medail de la Justice du Quebec”, and in the same year, she had her first solo exhibition which made her embrace sculpting full time.

Bozena gives credit to her parents, especially her mother, for introducing her to the world of art by taking her to museums and exhibitions as a kid.
Elzbieta Szczodrowska, of course, was also a major influence on her art and development as an artist.
Ongoing large scale sculpture projects
“Presently, because of COVID restrictions, the studio Atelier 213 that I share with other 30+ artists in Laval is closed, so I am working in my studio at home on projects which will participate in competitions for monumental sculptures,” says Bozena. “Recently, I started a new fibreglass sculpture ‘Singing in the Rain’ which is my work in progress.”
Bozena is a figurative sculptor whose work focuses on the complexity and beauty of the human form. Her sculptures are intended to demonstrate the depth and the foibles of the human endeavour, along the journey of both the physical and spiritual evolution.
She works in bronze, stone, fibreglass, metal, resin, and gesso-duro.
