"Art in all its forms, in my opinion, brings creative beauty into our world. The beauty of creation through imaginative minds shapes our surroundings. Imagine that."

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in California. He specializes in apocalyptic, story-telling scenes.

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 Roderick Harris. I am currently incarcerated at the California Men’s Colony. Art has always been a part of my life and I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. Today, I view art as an eternal place of creativity that one envisions and imagines, thus bringing an image from one’s mind out and into the world. Art in all its forms, in my opinion, brings creative beauty into our world. The beauty of creation through imaginative minds shapes our surroundings. Imagine that. .
