Briden Cole Schueren is a self taught painter who was encouraged and guided at a young age by

his grandmother, who was also a painter.

He uses unconventional methods and

techniques in his work, including hand

crafting his own paint brushes to further

enhance his unique usage of color,

movement, and texture in each piece.

 

Briden is an international queer trans

activist, artist, and business owner, who shares

his life’s journey through his art. Being born a

female-bodied person, he loves making art that pushes boundaries and makes people think beyond societal norms. His many challenges and personal transformations have led to the happy person he is today, and his love and passion to create can be felt in each of his pieces. It is this passion to create art in any form, that has given his life immense purpose and joy. 

"If I did not have the ability to create in my life, I am not sure where I would be now. Art has helped me in so many ways, it has saved my life and that is why I want to share it with others."

“A true artist is someone that does not bound themselves with one style of art, or adheres to the rules for what art is supposed to be. Instead they look at any creative opportunity as a spark of inspiration to think outside of the box and create something new and learn something new. If you want to learn how to weld to build a large metal sculpture, there is nothing stopping you.”
