MINGUS REEDUS is a rising senior at NYU TISCH studying film with a feature length screenplay in progress. Despite his ties to the film industry, his creative passions reach far beyond the screen. Growing up under the influence of two creatively oriented parents (Helena Christensen and Norman Reedus), Mingus has acquired a taste for the rawest forms of art. In preschool, he began animating short films and acting in original theater plays. In high school, he grew a strong passion for music and immediately took to his laptop to experiment with producing his own. Mingus now has his own EP in the works and is planning to release it under the name LUCIEN. Mingus ultimately aims to be a busy face in the music world, working as a music producer and vocalist, and a pretty face in the fashion world, modeling the full spectrum. He has previously walked for big designers such as Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, and Raf Simons, and appeared in numerous magazines, most recently of which was French Vogue. Through his experiences, Mingus has grown far more accustomed to modeling and considers himself ready for more frequent projects. In 2021, music and fashion are the best of friends and MINGUS REEDUS is eager to prove his potential in both areas.
