Alphonso Howard has been incarcerated on death row San Quentin since 1992.
Alphonso writes, "I am a student artist on a mission. It’s my endeavour to share this journey of expressed freedom with you honouring the life, the strengths and the struggles of my African-American heritage. With no formal training throughout the evolution of my art, it’s become more than just a hobby for me. It became a lifesaver, a medium through which I can express that zest for life that is so innate in us all. Even though I’ve been incarcerated now for many years, I maintain that hope filled dream of freedom through the rare and beautiful symphony of my
artistic expression. From my heart to yours. Enjoy."
