The 'Captured Project' is a unique initiative that aims to draw attention to the CEOs who have carried out corporate misdeeds. The twist is that these illustrations have been created by people who are serving a prison sentence of their very own.

The premise of the Captured Project is to have criminals illustrate the portraits of those who they believe should be in prison. The project was started by Jeff Greenspan and Andrew Tider, who argue that "Corporations frequently commit crimes any average person would be imprisoned for." To draw attention to the alleged criminals, Greenspan and Tider asked prisoners to paint the faces of the defamed CEOs. When viewing the portraits online, users can see a list detailing the CEOs alleged crimes or the crimes committed by his or her corporation.

The project ultimately serves as a striking commentary on the issue of corporate greed and white-collar crime in America.
