Currently incarcerated in Colorado.

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in Colorado. He specializes in fantasy characters.

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

Dear readers, Scotty “Olly Boi” Ames. I’m 40 years old and have been incarcerated most of my adult life and same of my adolescence. During that time I have found peace and freedom through art. I’ve had many days and nights to master my style. I’ve also had the opportunities to be around a lot of wonderful artists thousands of times better than myself. From them, I’ve gathered influence and style to allow me to perfect my own. The Colorado DOC is a full of artists that have influenced me my entire life and because of them, I am who I an. You know who you are! My art is an extension of who I am and it continues to grow and advance in both technicality and composition. Today’s masterpiece is timorous old news. I believe that is the definition of growth in the art world. I hope you can enjoy my journey with me, if not I still walk the path alone!.
