In a short interview with Ian Kane, the co-founder, and co-CEO of Unbanked, Mingo revealed that he is both a traditional and a digital artist. In 2015, he started his career as a digital artist through Upwork. After doing various works as a digital artist, he landed a job as a creator for the “Pudgy Penguins which eventually became a success. And with Unbanked and Mingo joining forces for the Bankers NFT, another success is in the making.
