A couple of well-known political artists inside prison are Mumia Abu-Jamal and Hyung-Rae Tarselli. Mumia is a death row prisoner who was railroaded by a political system. Hyung-Rae is a Korean American adoptee who is a prisoner at the S.C.I. Breene Prison. He draws cartoons to highlight injustice in the system. Both of the artists' works have been published in books and magazine.
Recently, I was informed that a friend has created a website to share his art with people on societal values, race, class, and identity. When you have a chance, please check out www.santossheltonart.com.
