Why I am involved in Mail-Art:
I like communication, art, paper, painting and concepts. The ideal combination for doing Mail-Art. Worked with rubberstamps as a child and started sending out letters as soon as I could write. Discovered that it was called mail-art in 1980. Have been discovering ever since and in the last years also promoting this free cultural exchange.

The Embassy

Posted on February 5, 2017 at 1:30pm 0 Comments

In the main-menu you can now easely find the several Embassy Groups in which artists from a specific country have joined. Mostly the group is run by a mail-artists from that country. Very easy when you want to inform your local network of mail-artist.

If the Embassy of your country doesn't exsist yet, consider starting a new group for this specific purpose.

Message from Steve Random:

Dear Ruud,

    With a leadened heart I must relay the passing of Ben Banville (aka Zona and later Xona), don't know if you corresponded with him in the Mail Art heydays of the 80's, but he was one of the best at art and just happened to be my best friend. I will put something on my page, but thought you might want to know and pass along.
