- JulioCesartist8 (live painting)

https://www.juliocesartist.com/


In March 2012 after being assaulted by the doorman in a bar in central London, Julio ended up in prison for a period of two and a half years. He took up painting as a form of escapism from the monotonous and tedious regime of prison life and used the medium as a way to mentally leave the compounds of his 12x6 feet cell.


The work looks into thoughts, feelings, emotions, internal conflicts and desires - an exploration of what he experienced each and every day of the two and a half years served in the over crowded and basic conditions of the prison system. I produced around sixty paintings, recycling the prison fire blankets as canvases and using acrylic paints as this was the only paints allowed to be used. Painting became my passion and my new story-telling medium when I had no access to a camera.
