"I hope anyone reading will enjoy the artwork from all the incarcerated artists. That enjoyment is a way to pay back and help to make amends."

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in New Jersey. He specializes in detailed, fantasy 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

Being locked up, away from your loved ones, losing all sense of self is brutal. I never worry about myself but about those I left “outside”. With all the time in the world to think, and vast periods of loneliness and boredom, you need something to get yourself out of your head. For me this is art. Whether it is simply doodling or getting deep into a portrait of landscape, anything to pass the time. There is something called the 10,000 hours rule. That anything you do for 10,000 hours you will get good at. I’m finding that to be true. I hope anyone reading will enjoy the artwork from all the incarcerated artists. That enjoyment is a way to pay back and help to make amends. Thank you..
