Josh Scheuerman

Salt Lake City, UT

"This is what I’ve learned in four years of not knowing what I’m doing: Be kind, be brave. That’s my mantra. The thing I think helps me so I can go and create, is being kind. And when life is hard, because it will certainly be hard, you have to be brave. Be brave when you’re terrified, take a deep breath. It’s going to be okay."

More About This Creator


How do your pieces come to life? Tell us one interesting thing about your creative process?

"I work with clients and figure out what they want before I start the process. I've gone down the rabbit hole too often thinking I knew what they wanted to only be rejected after multiple designs. If a client is paying for a service it's most likely what they are going to want. I've talked a few clients back on their likes compared to their customers likes, but I'm happy to switch gears on a project and more often than not, it becomes a better piece than the direction I was heading. Once I know where we are heading, I have the ability to paint and fill the space as I think it should be. I have a graphic design background and I understand how to stretch the rules and figure out how pieces should lay against the surface. A little abstract and a little natural rule of thumb goes a long way. A brush stroke on top of a piece and highlights tie the whole piece together. That's the key; more highlights!"

What do you want people to do or feel when they encounter your creations?

"I tend to create what the client wants me to create, wether I have full artist license or a small sliver of creative control, when I'm painting a mural I tend to be painting for a client. My own art I can make what I choose, but if I'm working with a client I want it to speak to them or about the environment. Sometimes it's political in nature or historical, but I want them to remember a time when artists painted billboards and signs, advertisements and illustrations. I feel it was the turning point for the use of computers to kill that creative spirit and I would like it to live on through my art."

What funny moments, unexpected surprises, or obstacles have you encountered?

"Creating art is so scary for adults who think they are being judged by their peers, but not for little kids. I used to work as a server/bartender at the restaurant for 10 years and would keep all of the kids doodles when the family left knowing they had just left behind a Picasso picture! True inspiration to draw from and when I need to realign my intentions, think like a kid and through the rules out the window. It's great that artists can make a living off painting, but it's also stressful to do so. Kids just draw the most amazing things for fun. When I passed a table I would say, "Draw a dragon with a jetpack on flying over the moon with stars and also fighting space aliens!" Those are great pictures and it makes you realize how much freedom you have as an artist if you don't take yourself too seriously."
