Smiles & Smirks

Art with a measure of humour is required by Walmarth Corporation for its chain of supermarkets, located in the Queendom of Retailia and in Cascadia Artpost. Through this collaboration Cascadia Artpost and Mail Art Martha are continuing to give impulse to Trashpo, the artistic vision of Diane Keys.

‘Walmarth Corporation is an entertaining and witty parody of corporate, consumer culture. Cascadia Artpost’s painstaking realization of Mail Art Martha’s ideas through detailed, special effects style models makes Walmarth Corporation one of the crowning achievements of Trashpo in the half-decade that it has been producing a large quantity of art.’

In addition to Trashpo the Corporation has now expanded to include political satire, parody, comics, caricature and witty playfulness.

I can't remember how I became one of his contacts now.  Quite serendipitous isn't it how we made up our address lists!  The slide show does actually work ( for me anyhow!?)  if you click on the icon in top left hand corner of comment.

Unfortunately I never had any contact with Rudi Rubberoid, so thank you for posting these stamps, Michael.

A slide show of Rudi Rubberoid works. RIP.  He was very funny and generous with his rubber stamps and letters etc. Much missed.  Slide show doesn't seem to have worked. nevermind - heres a photo instead-

I received my copy of the Winter Solstice 2023 - Foldi 26 issue, with greetings for the new year. Thank you, Mail Art Martha, and I hope that this will be an art filled year for each one of you!
