Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Brandon has deep roots in the arts through music. An extensive musical upbringing from playing drums, to singing in the church choir, laid the foundation for his creative expression. Primarily a self taught artist, he paints nostalgic imagery he remembers from his childhood. Playfully depicting subjects like smiley-face balloons, origami figures, and gummie bears, his jovial perception is undeniable. Deener directly attributes the Miami art scene as the initial catalyst for his deep dive into the world of fine art.
