One of the inmates that Fine Cell Work works with did a piece for them on happiness from one of the UK based prisons. I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. Knowing that this guy to some degree is cut off from society, and when thinking about happiness comes up with this is very impressive. It is so detailed… The colours are amazing, and I like the fact that it is quite naive and surreal at the same time.
We have been using the images as inspiration for the embroidery that we are producing with Fine Cell Work for AW13.
