Founded in August 2020, Black Collagists is an online platform that highlights and amplifies the work solely of Black artists making collages worldwide. The platform features the work of emerging Black collage artists as well as more established and well-known collage artists in order to raise awareness about the history of Black collage art.
In December 2021, “Black Collagists: The Book” was published by Kanyer Publishing. Written and curated by Teri Henderson, the publication features over fifty emerging and established Black collage artists from around the world. With over 300 full-color images alongside historical context and academic essays, the book establishes a physical archive of the history and the future of Black collage artists.

Jeffrey Kent is a multidisciplinary artist. His artwork is conceptual, informed by the historical and the personal, inextricably linked. He utilizes the medium best suited for the subject and temperament of the discussion he is creating. His paintings are generally large artworks, dramatic in gesture, color, layering, composition, and presentation. Sculpture and bricolage artworks emphasize the socio-political meaning in ordinary objects of daily life. In critically examining the accessibility of the contemporary Art World, Kent develops live performance and community investment projects.
