⚖ Description

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

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

For me art is an escape, a way to process my feelings & emotions. A way to express myself whether it’s with a charcoal stick or paintbrush or a tattoo machine. Whatever the medium may be, I pour my heart & soul into each piece I create. It’s also my escape from the reality of prison. When I’m working, I’m not here. I’m gone & usually at peace for a brief moment. This is my passion, what I love to do. Art keeps me sane, I think. I’ve been drawing since I was a little kid. Gave it up for a few years after high school then picked it back up in here. And it’s what all of my free time is spent doing. You can find more of my work @HeathenArt1349 on Instagram. I hope you enjoy what you see..
