Bryun was born in 1971, in New Jersey. At the age of 13, his family moved to Southern California. In 1992, he graduated from CSU, Long Beach with a BFA, in Ceramics. Bryun is a cis, gay male feminist that is a vocal activist fighting for LGBTQ+, women, and POC rights and equality. He coined the term, registered trademarked, designed the font and image, and subsequent merchandise for “Femme Menace®” which donates proceeds from its sales to charities fighting for egalitarian equality.

Bryun has lived in Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Chicago, and now resides back in his home State of New Jersey. Each location provided artistic growth and cultural immersion with local artists and patrons alike. His artwork is commissioned for both public and private display.
