Born in Calgary in 1980, BJ Sosa had a very strong interest in the visual arts from a young age.
Living so close to the Rocky Mountains gave him the special opportunity to see them in the background while he played in the playground, which lit the inspiration and passion inside him to keep BJ painting over the years.
A pivotal moment during his childhood was when BJ was eight and was selected to paint part of the Olympic mural at his school. This opportunity solidified his early instincts to become an Artist.
However things changed two years later when his family moved to the US. In a completely different world, the mountains seemed to fade away as did his time spent drawing them as he moved around the next twenty years.
In 2012, BJ moved back to Calgary and decided it was time to change life paths and his career. It was time to follow the one he had instinctively as a kid playing in the playground, looking at the mountains and painting them whenever he could, which he has now turned into his full-time art career as a self-taught artist.
