"I have found inner peace through my artwork, and I am extremely passionate about it."

⚖ Description

The artist was previously incarcerated in Colorado. He specializes in black & white drawings.

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

My name is Alex Atzinger and I’m 32 years old from Louisville, KY. I am currently incarcerated at Louisville Metro Department of Corrections, but I will be getting out in the next month of two. I have spent almost 10 calendars in and out of prison since I was 18 due to a long battle with addiction and the lifestyle that comes with it. I have found inner peace through my artwork, and I am extremely passionate about it. I love painting, I am a beginner in the tattoo field, and drawing. But we are extremely limited to what tools I have in here, this drawing is done with a No.02 pencil which I have to sharpen on a crevice in the brick wall, lol. I have dreams if being a successful tattoo artist and would love to be able to apprentice under a talented artist because I know once I learn to use the machine properly, I will take oof. Until then, I will continue to teach myself. If there are any tips, resources, or advice I would love to hear back from you all. It does get lonely in here. I hope I get chosen to be a part of the book. .
