MANY TIMES THE COMPLETED ART IS OFTEN CONFISCATED DAMAGED OR DESTROYED.
As you view the magnificent creations of expressions of thought you will preview art conceived and formulated into completion. Not on canvas but on a “pano” or a handkerchief, not on quality art paper but on the back side of the envelope. Often the masterpiece is completed on the inside cover of a magazine or on the inside cover of the a correctional manual.
In most cases art supplies are not available so the incarcerated artists must improvise or approach his application via trial and error. In most cases the instrument of application is only a small pen filler (A pen can be easily forged into a weapon). Most of the colors you see must be done using candies like an M&M.
"we have no erasers... actually all we have is pen filler"..
"I'm sentenced to die in prison, but I live through my freedom of expression"..
"for some, art is the same as religion, a gateway to inner peace"..
