I find these facts to be troubling especially when you consider that so many people are incarcerated due to the war on drugs and that people with a felony record have such a hard time earning a decent legal living
Since most prisoners will be the released I think it’s important to let family member know that he or she has not been forgotten or abandoned. Also family is the first and best source of a support system that can help an ex offender stay out of prison. -Mark
About Eric Okdeh
Eric Okdeh is a Philadelphia based muralist, who has been creating public art since 1998. After receiving his BFA in painting from Tyler School of Art, Eric chose to focus on mural work exclusively. Since 2002, in addition to his commissioned work, Eric has taught mural making classes to children and teens throughout the city as well as inmates at SCI Graterford Prison. The classes exist as leadership, teamwork, and skill building exercises which culminate in major mural projects.
In an attempt to capture these significant community collaborations and interactions, Eric has developed this website and mural blog. The projects are journalized and documented in photographs and video clips to lend outside observers insight into the processes by which his murals come about.
Eric has over 65 commissions throughout the city of Philadelphia and one in Seville, Spain. He has participated in mural projects in Tucson, Arizona and Los Angeles. His work is featured in four books about public and Mural art.
