“I will start from the bottom. As you can see, the heart all the scar. That mean all situation that we go through in life, when we are lost and think we are alone. Depression. Dugs. Family problems. Money problems. Health problems when we hit rock bottom we need to realize we never alone. God is always with us no matter your religion, your belief, God is always there for you and when you start seeing that you going to start feeling that as well. Your life is going to change for the good, it is going to be hard and painful because the good never comes easy that’s why I draw the crown of thorn. The flower growing from the heart represent the growth of your Faith through time, that’s when you going to start feeling that the weight is no longer in your shoulders. You will feel that you will fly through life “that’s why I drew the wings”. The cross means that we can’t forget that he died in the cross for all our sins. So our Faith can always live on our hearts and he’s light left, right or right, left no matter the direction. That light will illuminate all of us. You just have to open your heart and let your Faith guide you through life. *English is Wilfredo second language. He is aksing for forgiveness of the mistakes."

⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in New Jersey. He specializes in panos.

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.

Practicing a lot. I love to draw. I love to put my ideas on paper. Drawing changes my life completely for the good. I want to thank you for the opportunity to let my work be seen. My artist name is “Imperios Ink”. Imperio is my nickname.”.
