Two Rude Co.
Two Rude Co. is a collaboration between Millie (from Toronto) and Linn (from Berlin). The company was started by accident in January 2017 after their “FRIG” t-shirt took off (with much help from their friends at Big Pony) and they realized they could come up with a few more fun designs. Both Linn and Millie design and screen-print from their small home in the West End of Halifax.
I’m an Ojibway Native from Ontario, Canada. My family is from Wasauksing First Nation. I am a woodland artist who is dedicated to restoring the arts and stories of the Ojibway. I started painting in my early twenties and haven’t hadany formal training for fine arts. I graduated the graphic design program at Nova Scotia Community College in 2015 and am currently living in Vancouver BC. I’m inspired by traditional indigenous stories and animal symbolism. My goal is to help build reconciliation between indigenous
and non-indigenous through my artwork and give people a better understanding of Ojibway culture.
Born in Yarmouth and now living in Halifax, Bria describes herself as a queer, black, indigenous mixed media visual artist, activist and musician. She also works as a graphic facilitator and as an arts educator who leads workshops across Nova Scotia. Bria believes in the importance of spaces where racialized and 2SLGBTQ+ artists can create together, find support and access to
explore, and have their individual voices heard. She is working to organize a shared art space to center these beautiful and crucially important voices that contain endless magic, and are often silenced or outright neglected by our institutions and therefore society.
