After SatOne’s TI:ME mural, we are back at the Justizvollzugsanstalt Rockenberg or Rockenberg Youth Prison where Roids painted this fantastic piece for the mural project organized by Draw A Line inside the prison walls.
The project counted with the participation of Roids (London), Horfèe & Ken Sortais(Paris), SatOne (Munich), Score & Fence (Berlin) and resulted, not only in a series of wonderful pieces, but also meaningful conversations with the inmates which were in many ways surprised by the fact that they were able to participate of the project in a meaningful way:

“I thought we wouldn’t be allowed to participate really, I thought it would be only ‘Clean up behind the artists!’. But they allowed us to really do something useful with them.” — Mohamed, inmate

The point of the project was to bring art into the prison in order to enrich, motivate and inspire the prisoner’s lives especially during the transition back into the outside world. I think they did well.
