“When people ask me how or why I got into art after being in prison, I tell them, ‘I do it to stay out of prison,’” Alberto Lule says. “I use my own experience and agencies of authority to examine and critique the California carcel state, and also tie in immigration, homelessness, and mental health issues.”
