Visual Arts Northern Territory



Presented by Northern Territory Correctional Services, Department of the Attorney-General and Justice, and Northern Territory Government

A picture tells a thousand words, and the artwork created by Northern Territory Correctional Centre prisoners is a reflection of the artists’ lives and their community. Behind the Wire features paintings across many different styles, with each artist expressing their own experiences and often drawing on the style and culture of the region they are from.

See the exhibition and buy one of the works or other products from Prison Industries.
