Brandon Minga is a multidisciplinary artist practicing professionally for 16
years. He is currently the creator and a resident artist of the House of RAD
(Resident Artist Doers). In addition to his own practice, Brandon owns
and operates a small agency, the Mingadigm specializing in branding,
identities, interiors, murals, and commissioned art.

Brandon attended the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design where
he received his bachelor’s degree in Fine Art Illustration, 2004. Since
graduating, he has spoken on alumni panels and has taught as a guest
instructor at MIAD. His work with students motivated Brandon to volunteer
as a mentor to underprivileged teens through Hanson Dodge’s On-Ramp
MKE program. Those interactions have inspired his love for making art that
engages people of all ages and backgrounds.

Brandon’s artwork reaches the public through a variety of channels, with
emphasis on community-minded projects – and while the majority of his
work has been primarily exhibited throughout Southeastern Wisconsin, it
has been showcased nationally and internationally as well. Locally, he
has been elected to complete a 27’x15’ 3D mixed-media mural for the
Black Cat Alley public art space and has been a two-time finalist in the
Pfister Hotel Artist and Residency program. Brandon’s impact at the new
Fiserv Forum was two-fold - not only was he chosen, along with 31 other
artists, to create a mixed-media triptych art piece for the Milwaukee Bucks
Collection, but his work was also debuting at the Candy Lab store where
he created all of the wall, floor, and lollipop graphics. Live art events have
also played a big part in Brandon’s career. He has enjoyed creating live
for various nonprofits such as Open Canvas, Feeding America, and Arte
Para Todos. Notably, Brandon worked with American Family Insurance live painting
every day of Summerfest’s 50th Anniversary, and he completed
a painting with XQ Super School Project in which the local community was
able to interact and paint along with him. Brandon’s most important work
is currently with America’s Black Holocaust Museum where he has created
and art directed all of the graphics from production, through print and
Wescover creator since 2020
