Mashaun Ali Hendricks is a restorative justice practitioner and contemporary artist. He is a result-oriented practitioner and educator in restorative justice philosophy and practices, specializing in providing training and professional development for community members and youth services providers, including K - 12 teachers and school administrators, community organizations, and criminal justice systems. He is a social justice visionary committed to resolving social issues that lead to instances of crime and violence in under-served and disadvantaged communities. 

As a contemporary artist, Mashaun uses the media of screen printing, design, streetwear apparel, text, wheat-paste, concept stores, and installations. The apparel, printed works, and installations created demand people's attention with bold phrases and images, upon questioning and conversation, viewers find that the messages and text in the work purposefully use a paradox, irony, and subversive language that makes a statement about current socio-political and socio-economic conditions and opportunities.
