⚖ Description

The artist is currently incarcerated in New Jersey.

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

"I’m a Boricua artist, I’ve been drawing for 22 years exactly the time I have been here in NJ State prison. I learnt drawing the same way I learnt speaking english and writing english. 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.".
