An artist without identity

For an artist, the journey to gain an identity is a long and lonely road. Having discovered the great therapeutic benefits of art for the soul while incarcerated and my ability to paint was a god’s sent gift.

Being an artist while in prison I had not only my freedom taken away but also my identity and two and a half years after being freed, my identity still remains restrained till the end of my parol in March 2017!

The following is a digital story made as part of the Stretch Digital project funded by the Big Lottery in collaboration with the PET (Prisoner Education Trust) – the films are made with Stretch practitioner Alex Harwood in the traditional digital story method.

Former prisoners tell their story of education and rebuilding their lives in and out of prison.

Floating Truth

Floating Truth.

Acrylic on canvas 127x127cm.

The way the environment is under attack and the damage being done to it is heart breaking and worst of all, it is becoming irreversible. Yet most multinationals don’t do their part to try and innovate to save our planet but on top of that, the president of the US abandons the Paris agreement to let his funders and buddies curry on ripping the planet apart with just profits in their minds!

I finished this, my latest painting yesterday and thought I share it with you all and wish you all a good weekend and think what you can do to protect the planet.
