Independent Republic of Mikhamik
Mikha Dominguez aka Mikhamik (Caracas, May 12, 1987) is a Queer non binary latinx Venezuelan visual artist, photographer, sculptor and a blacksmith who has resided in Minneapolis since 2014. Their early career was spent working in the Venezuelan national television industry as a set designer and Art Director where he experienced state censorship under the dictatorship of President Hugo Chávez. In response, Dominguez left Venezuela, and joined the more than six million other Venezuelans who fled the militaristic and authoritarian Chávez regime. Recently the work of Mikha Dominguez was part of the artists included in the 50th anniversary of the Pride of the Twin Cities. In 2022 Mikha was one of three artists-in-residence at the NE Sculpture Gallery in Minneapolis. Dominguez’s work is actively being part of the community through “Mikhamik House Of Arts” a series of installations of public access made by the artist on the facade of their home in South Minneapolis. Mikha is currently developing blacksmithing studies, attending to the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD) and is part of the Educators team at the Walker Art Center in the Public Engagement, Learning and Impact (PELI). Mikha also teaches the “Work of Art” Workshop (Business skills for Artists) At the Springboard for the arts.
