Currently incarcerated in Wisconsin

"Old girlfriend"

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in Wisconsin. He specializes in black & white chicano style 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

I first started drawings or drawing around 7. I would ask my sisters of what they would like me to draw to see if they liked them. I got better as they started liking more. I like portraits a lot because when I moved out of my mom’s I no longer had my sisters around so I first started by putting a mirror on the table and started there. I’ve drawn hundreds of ??? over the years in lock up. I had to send out 50 one time because I was transferred and they said some of the art was not acceptable, at these moments I’ve gotten worse at my art work but it’s coming right back. I’ve even got an ex-celly to get married by sending her pictures of her with his poems inside. Eventually I’ll paint brush and tattoo when I get out. As for the picture I love drawing women and since they don’t allow nudes, I drew her from chin up. Still getting her beauty. And threw in a vehicle to represent movement when while lock up. I’m always gonna be moving. Alright you have a nice day.
