Profile Information

My Website:
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.

Carissimo Ruud, visto che mi è arrivata una risposta un po' secca da un membro di IUOMA, ti chiedo se mi sto muovendo in modo sbagliato, se infastidisco... ecco la risposta ricevuta"  brinkinfield left a comment for Bruno Cassaglia

"Could you just fuck off Bruno? Your continual trawling of IUOMA members, frankly, is creepy. No one is interested in you or your blog, at least no more so than their choice of socks to wear in the morning. Accept it, give it up, do something…"  ti sarei molto grato se mi dessi un consiglio... non so più cosa fare... un fraterno abbraccio . b
