IUOMA MOBMA (Museum of Bad Mail Art)


IUOMA MOBMA (Museum of Bad Mail Art)

I frequent thrift stores looking for frames and canvases that I can re-use. I find something sad and intriguing about the handmade art that finds its' way into the donation piles.  As an offshoot of the amazing Museum of Bad Art  (MOBA) http://www.museumofbadart.org/

I am hoping we can assemble a unique collection of the ugliest reject art out there. This can be one you find, something you have made, bad industrial art for the masses, or mail art flunks.  There is beauty in imperfection.

the rainbow robot pic is awful Jim, but I can't bring myself to dislike anything to do with dogs.  but it is pretty bad and I bet there is a  clown   painting to match.  Rebecca--bad Spring art? sounds good to me but whatever you want to do you are the Queen and get to lord over all for a month or two or three or an entire season!!!

Bad romance would be a good follow on from the burlesque theme! I like the idea! Those covers are stunningly amazing- bachelor bait! HAHAHA!

Yo, DVS, Not only is Marie an adult, but she is also an empress. I mean, if she did mot choose to be an IUOMA MOBMA spokesmodel....

That Marie Windsor pic, that is Anti-MinXus. Is this some kind of hair contest retribution?

Someone says they don't like Trashpo and they end up as a piece of bad art in MOBMA.
