Pawel Petasz (1951-2019)

On Facebook I read: "Sad news about Pawel Petasz in Poland died in April. No idea this had happened. No mention of it on FaceBook as far as i know? He did some wonderful mail art and will be greatly missed." published by Michael Leigh (UK)This group is made to honor him and to share some things to keep the memory alive. May he rest in peace.See More

Yes, the install is going well. Posters and large decal printed - the window in library looks good. As does the cabinets although some are rather tall and not really suited to small flat works. See More

"I stumbled across mail art in the Whitechapel Gallery Imprint 93 exhibition in 2016, but at the time, was focusing on their zine-making. So your exhibition's going to broaden my horizons, I'm sure."

"Thanks Jennifer. Hope you can make it to the exhibition. I remember when I first saw the Ti Parks exhibition of mail art he organised at the Greenwich Theatre Gallery back in 1980 - it was quite a revelation to me. So hopefully this exhibition will…"

Not sure why they have a blog post here?  I guess you can write what you want. Any gibberish will do. Duffle coats through the mail?  Yes, I have never tried  I must confess. Wearing them seemed much preferable. I have worn many over the years. A green one, a beige one with wooden toggles, and the black one I have now which is a bit worse for wear - fraying at the cuffs. I need to look out for a new one. Maybe treat myself this Autumn.

Hi Michael, If you want to do a swop with me/UK add and pass let me have your address.  i've just added something to an add & pass from Laura so not really sure who to send it on to... 

ps I'm not on facebook/instagram/twitter, I'm a proper snail mail bunny

Thank you Michael, I'm sorry for my delayed reply, I don't get on the computer too much.  Yes I'm a mail artist in the UK, based in London.  I was wondering if you might have a UK mail artists directory.  I'm mainly interested in mail art swops, or contributing to various themed calls - I prefer that over adding and passing.

Thanks for the tip off, I found his website 'Part b' . Interesting to see what he's been up to!

Hi Michael, sorry for delay in replying. We were in communication around 2000-2001 I think. But also, long before that, I once delivered a friend in a sealed box to your International Mail Art Convention, in Lambeth, around about 1990 I reckon. Ben Part was his name, 'Part B' his alias. We then came in and made mail art together. It's a memory I still cherish! John Held Junior was also there, he helped me unload the 'parcel' from my 'delivery van'... Ben was not a small chap! I've long since lost touch with him. Marta Aitchson sent me some of your Ping Pong collaborative stamps which are lovely. Hope you're well and happy! Best wishes, Amrit
