Ft. Lauderdale, FL (January 23, 2024) – Charles Smart, known as “Mark Phi,” an international Artivist based in South Florida, has brought his artistic brilliance to the forefront through a commissioned interactive painting for Paramount Pictures’ upcoming “Bob Marley One Love” Movie, slated for release on Valentine’s Day.
The term “Artivist” perfectly encapsulates Mark Phi’s unique approach, where art seamlessly intersects with activism. His commissioned masterpiece made its debut at the “TikTok In The Mix” global music event in Mesa, Arizona, on December 10th, alongside performances by celebrated artists like Cardi B, Niall Horan, Anitta, Charlie Puth, Offset, and Peso Pluma.
Mark Phi’s journey in the world of art began unexpectedly at a Sip and Paint event in Boca Raton in 2013. What started as a discovery of latent artistic abilities has evolved into an extraordinary achievement – he is now the exclusive artist with a collection of Bob Marley fine art paintings permanently exhibited at the Bob Marley Museum in Kingston, Jamaica. This exhibition space is aptly named the “Mark Phi International Room.”
