A self-taught mixed media painter; Brent Kustermann resides in northeastern Minnesota, United States. Working out of his home studio, he has been creating work for twenty years and continues to explore non-traditional methods to produce his work. The backbone of his work hinges on the complexities of sustainability and up-cycling. Reusing house paint, found objects and discarded items offer a challenge that is at the focal point of his creative drive. 

The implementation of heavy line work, bold colors, countless overlaying of subject and transparency, generate a style and composition that are both unique and inviting to the viewer.
