About HYBYCOZO

HYBYCOZO is the collaborative studio of Serge Beaulieu and Yelena Filipchuk. The work consists of larger than life geometric sculptures, often with patterns and textures that draw inspirations from mathematics, science, and natural phenomena. Their works celebrate the inherent beauty of geometric form and pattern, and compose them in ways that harmonize the experience of sculpture, light, and shadow.

HYBYCOZO is short for The Hyperspace Bypass Construction Zone and represents the artists ongoing journey investigating the myriad dimensions of geometry. They have permanent public artworks around the world, from Dubai to Istanbul and Las Vegas to New Zealand. 

About the Artists

Yelena Filipchuk (b. 1987) Born in Lviv, Ukraine, Yelena attended UC Berkeley and studied Conservation and Resource Studies, concentrating on patterns in the natural world, biomimicry, and environmental justice. Then trained in studio art and fabrication and digital design. She thrives in the creative process, creating thought provoking artwork that investigates patterns and forms as a way to educate and inspire.

Serge Beaulieu (b. 1981) Born in Revelstoke, Canada and attended Carleton University. Having trained and practiced as an Industrial Designer for over 10 years, Serge has returned to his roots as an artist and sculptor by creating large scale artworks that expand the boundaries of technology, geometry and fabrication. He is constantly investigating materials and processes in order to harness design as his medium for art.
