In-Sight: The Artists and Writers of San Quentin Prison – Keith Thomas (#K-82600)

Abstract by Keith Thomas

Founded in 2015 by London-based artist Nicola White, Art Reach is a charity which gives purpose and hope to death row inmates in the US, providing art materials, regular meaningful contact, and the opportunity to exhibit their work here in the UK. To support the valuable work that Nicola is doing to support some of America’s most ostracised citizens, and to recognise the human rights of death row inmates in the US and beyond, we will be dedicating the next few weeks to the artwork and writing of the men she supports at San Quentin Prison, California.


Keith Thomas
Keith Thomas was sentenced to death in 1998.

His attorney says: “I have known Keith since he was 18, when he was arrested. Since then I have seen him grow into a thoughtful man with much to express. Thank goodness he has art with which to do so.”

— California Defence Attorney

Be sure to pop along to THE ART OF TRANSFORMATION: Redemption versus Death at the Old Deptford Cinema before the end of April to witness in full effect the many talents of San Quentin’s death row artists.
