“ConArtists” – Showcasing the artworks of Julio Cesar Osorio and Louie McManus

Knowing how hard Julio has worked to get this project off the ground for over half a year – from finding a venue, to raising the funds – it is wonderful that the opening day is almost upon us!  I would urge everyone to visit this show, which serves to highlight how art can heal, provide solace and rehabilitate – and if you cannot be there, please help spread the word.  -beck @artistscribbles

Showcasing the artworks of Julio Cesar Osorio and Louie McManus

“ConArtists”

Selected works by former prisoners in the heart of London’s Law District: 11th June – 5th July 2015

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.”

“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 Osorio
