🖋 Artist's bio

I am not from Colorado but re-enlisted to transfer here from the Army. My downfall was being a misguided youth at age 22 and having an addiction problem which I couldn’t solve on my own. Despite that, I was not raised to be where I am now but I have managed to hold true to myself in here to remain who I am and not become what prison tries to make you. Chris Allen is still a person, NOT A NUMBER, and is still certainly not a product of the cognitive dysfunction that prison tries to create, en masse. Not that I am immune to these stresses but I use my art to convey what I’ve witnessed and been part of. Prison is still “no peach”, however, being noticed and felt through art helps alleviate my pain. There are still many in here coping with distress and marginalization which amplify our pain. I’d like to use art to call attention to the overlooked and marginalized masses of the prison industrial complex. .
