¨(…) Known for his controversial performance pieces, Angel pushed the boundaries as to what was considered decent and was sentenced to six months in jail. Left to serve his time without any outside assistance, Angel quickly learned ways to barter with other inmates for small luxuries like clean sheets and an occasional cigar. He took the materials at hand such as heavy bars of harsh soap and recycled handkerchiefs to begin creating artwork that could be used in trade. At first creating religious icons, his work became more personal, expressing his feelings of censorship, oppression, incarceration and of the society of prison both inside and outside it´s walls¨.
