Haydn Llewellyn Davies

Haydn Llewellyn Davies was born in Rhymney, Wales, in 1921. A Canadian resident since 1929, Davies' unique mix of Welsh tradition and landscape feature prominently in his work. He studied painting and drawing at the Ontario College of Art and later, sculpture at the University of Toronto.

Although Davies' first career was in advertising, he left the field in the 1970s. He won his first public sculpture commission in 1974 from Lambton College in Sarnia, Ontario. The resulting work, Homage, made from Western Red Cedar, was Davies' first large-scale public sculpture. Subsequent large-scale works in steel or aluminum are located at the entrances of the Vero Beach Art Museum, Florida; the Government of Ontario Offices, in Windsor, Ontario; the Burlington Art Centre, Ontario; the Bell Canada Head Office, Toronto, and others, as well as the Windsor Sculpture Garden.

In Europe, his works for interior spaces are in the permanent collections of the Galleria Nazionale D'Arte Moderna e Contemporenea, Rome, Italy; Museo d'Arte Moderna, Venice, Italy; the Musees Royaux des Beaux-Arts de Belgique, Brussels.

A poster done by Davies during his WW2 service in the RCAF is in the Permanent Poster Collection of the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

Davies died in Toronto on March 24, 2008.
