Welcome. The stunning work of prison artist, Michael "Empty " Jasper is brought to you by PrisonArtWare.com

Born out of sorrow, comes the severe hallucinations crafted by the twisted mind of Empty aka Michael Jasper. Stigmatized by a system out of control, images manifest to his adept hands. Equally versed in creation as well as the destruction of art. He and his art are thus influenced by the great surrealists M.C. Escher, Salvador Dali, and the greatest H.R. Giger. He manipulates his muses into a style he refers to as “Horror Porn”, giving your mind and eyes powerful orgasms. He only wishes for you to join in his pain, see his hate, enjoy his lust, and experience his anguish.
Classically schooled in art, as well as life’s hard lessons of love and hate, his style and ambiance transcend traditional values and viewpoints. His work comes alive as a shadow lurking in corners or as a moment of clarity in the chaos of life, equally bruising your mind and spirit as you embrace it.
From Baltimore, MD, he was fueled by Heavy Metal and sickness, helpless to his calling as an artist, allowing his emotions to bleed his instruments dry, whether pen, pencil, or brush. Embracing his madness, he finds his solace moments of creation, as all artists do. And in the most chaotic of places, prison, with only simple copy paper, prison safety pins, and pieces of prison shoes used as an eraser, he
thus creates his dreams, memories, and nightmares for your delight. He occasionally ventures into color using a child’s love for coloring and their imagination yet in the hands of a skilled master still evolving.
Aside from these stand alone originals, he is also currently illustrating the words and madness of a graphic novelist. Over his 40 plus years of life, this is the first collaboration he’s been privy to. He only wonders why at 46 it hasn’t happened before, to share his art to create with another. He yearns as all
artists for his art, ideas, and dreams to fly into the realms of success. To put behind him the days of living in a graveyard like some love-struck ghoul wanted an old forgotten love. Or was he simply a fool as all artists have been called when one dares to dream?
So here he presents this menagerie for you to enjoy and revel in a dreamer’s dream.
