"I also do a lot of my art with “seg” pens because it makes it a challenge. The reason being it’s a flexible in pen so it’s hard to draw with and I can’t erase any mistake so it’s all first try and original art."

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in Kentucky. He specializes in expressionism, one brush strike in 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 Nathan Cody Bratcher I am from Hartfort Kentucky I am 27 years old. I don’t do a lot of realism art, I do a lot of abstract & “street” art. I also do a lot of my art with “seg” pens because it makes it a challenge. The reason being it’s a flexible in pen so it’s hard to draw with and I can’t erase any mistake so it’s all first try and original art. What my art is to me is “raw” emotion it’s whatever I’m feeling or I’m going through at the time being. Art is also something that helps me escape my current surroundings and it puts me away from the bricks and razor wire for a while. Well I hope you can feel and enjoy my art as much as I do. Much love to you all.
