About MJ Fentis

M.J. Fentis is a graphic designer based in Fort Smith, Arkansas. His style is heavily influenced by the African–American Civil Rights movement of the 1970’s that he experienced, and the contemporary pop culture of Black entertainment in the late 2010’s.

I consider myself an old school revolutionary still trying to stay relevant and contemporary through my artwork. I was a political activist and radical in my younger years. And still believe that the struggle continues and the agenda remains the same: Peace, Love and positive change. As a revolutionary artist, I seek to create positive, meaningful art and use that as a vehicle to give back and promote personal enlightenment. I feel that through art and love I have been given a second chance at life. Some of us have a harder and much more complicated journey in life, but I am very appreciative to be where I am right now in my journey. Still, at the same time I feel somewhat unfulfilled in that I have not yet been able to share and give back more. There is art for art sake. There is art for monetary gain. And there has always been art for positive and revolutionary change. Black and Universal love is the radical concept I am trying to promote now through my art.My true vision is not just about art. It is about the ways of reciprocity in life and art; that essential connection between humanity and beauty, the need to see beyond lines of conflict and into lines of universal connection.
