⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in California. He specializes in colorful collages.

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 Jason Issac Sandefur. I am a 42 year old man finishing a 16 year prison sentence for an assault charge in 2010. As of these past few years, I’ve come upon some hard truths and reality. I could use help and assistance from any direction. I am willing to put forth effort and work. I am an excellent writer and drawer. I love to create art, custom greeting cards, custom envelopes, Celtic knot work, roses, prison themed pieces from dark to light. I work with what is available which is pencil and pen and some colored pencils. I enjoy and am good at letters (Olde English, Gothic, Majuscule, Celtic, custom calligraphy, etc.) I can do religious or political work upon individual request-reserving the right to refuse service respectfully. I am saving money for family’s security and future. I want to help younger men avoid the path that I have previously taken. I want my light to exceed my darkness. Humbly at your service, Jason Sandefur..
