One-of-a-kind art piece from prison to style your home like no one else, spark conversation about the US criminal justice system and be part of the movement to end mass incarceration.

Be the trendy difference maker and acquire art from emerging artists while they serve their time. Every time you’ll look at this piece, you’ll know that you’ve believed in a second chance, prevented a family from spiraling into poverty and crime, allowed the victim* (if any) to be compensated through restitution, and led the way to successful re-entry into our society. All of this while enhancing your favorite room with original art your neighbors will envy you for.

"Detailed painting of a stone Aztec calendar filling most of the canvas, flanked by two palm trees. In the background, lightning fills a pink and purple sky."

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in Florida.
All original artworks are created by artists previously or currently incarcerated. They use whichever materials they have access to, and prove creative ingenuity beyond the norm. These original paintings and drawings are born in the heart of a prison cell, from the hands of an outsider artist to adorn the walls of your space. Each art piece is a one-of-a-kind that not only enhances your interior but also makes you actively participate in reforming the prison and criminal justice system.

The incarcerated artist receives 50% of the sales proceeds. The artists set their own prices based on the costs of materials (it can vary greatly from one facility to another), the time spent on the piece, their experience, and simply - what they think it’s worth. Alongside with offering a financial outlet, we aim to empower their confidence and reinstitute their status as human beings - not a number behind bars. For most, art is an escape, a path to self-discovery and healing. Through art, they can reconnect with society so the gap is not so unbridgeable when they get out. Through the sales, they can stay connected with their families, afford daily commissary items, pay societal debts, relieve the economic burden on their loved ones, and save up for the release date. So they have the financial means to get ahead of reinsertion and get a fair chance at that second chance.

✑ Artist's bio

"Jack Steward is an award winning multi-disciplinary artist who was born in 1975 near Tulsa, OK. Jack has travelled across the US and spent time in Europe and other foreign countries. He honorably served in the US Army as a combat medic, his combined life experiences inspire and inform his art. Much of his art has been done on private commission, portraits in pencil. He is currently focused on creating acrylic painting, and has also done photographic, sculpture, watercolor, pencil, charcoal, and pastel works. Jack refuses to focus on one type of genre and happily dabbles in different styles. Jack admires the art of many masters, to name a few, Leonardo Da Vinci, Rembrandt, Van Rijn, Vincent Van Gogh, Edouard Manet, Degas, Matisse, Balthus, Gustav Klimt and Paul Gaugin. And more modern artists, Marcel Duchamp, Salvador Dali, M.C Escher, Boris Vallejo, Frank Frazetta and many more. While recognition on that level is the dream, admiration by a smaller number of collectors is appreciated. He is currently operating amongst a small collective of artists who trust and support each other creatively.".
