“ConArtists” Selected works by former prisoners in the heart of London’s Law District

Selected works by former prisoners

in the heart of London’s Law District

Introducing Julio Cesar and Louie McManus – two former prisoners who learned their trade serving five and eleven year prison sentences in some of Britain’s most notorious jails.

The exhibited paintings portray a range of feelings, internal conflicts, emotions and desires; all of which were experienced through incarceration.

Now free, and challenging convention, Julio Cesar and Louie McManus are testament to the fact that art is a viable means of rehabilitation.

“It wasn’t until I’d reached the depths of despair that art entered my life and gave me the salvation I needed.” Julio Cesar

“An artist not afraid to share his inner most thoughts, feelings and emotions.” – Dean Stalham, ‘Made Corrections’

“You can see from his work what a creative and resourceful individual Julio is, and also how, despite limited, cramped circumstances, a dedicated, resilient person can find a means to creating great art.” Beck Nickolls ‘Artistscribbles’

Exhibition will be opening on Thursday 11th June from 6pm-10pm
