Happy Sleepy is the name of the first stuffed toy that Magda Wojtyra made based on a creature Marc Ngui drew. Educated as architects and self taught in a wide range of skills, we have been collaborating as Happy Sleepy since 2000.
We work from the road during extensive world travel and from home studios back at home in Toronto. We make drawings, paintings, textile art, photography, digital art, video installations, jewellery, books, comics and zines, websites for scientists, and many other projects.
We were greatly inspired by thangka artists in Nepal and now similarly devote our art practice to building the happy world we want to live in. We want to convince people that they are already braver, more cheerful, and have more freedom than they might suspect…
