Paulo Brusck's picture and I

Yes, I certainly heard about him but never communicated. If You have any questions - ask here Clemente Padin.
I met Paulo in Amsterdam during my World Tour in 81 or in 82. I had done some billboard art in San Francisco and mutual friends thought we should meet. I heard from him thru the mail for a while afterwards. I think I have some photos of him back in the 80s - will look sometime this month - since I was working on a photo book around that time.

Glad to read the news of his successes.
Yes, was in contact with him years ago (80-ies and 90-ies), but not heard of this the last decade.....Sorry.
His name is Paulo Bruscky
Glad to know you have heard of Paulo Brusck because it was important for the mail art in Brazil. Knowing he was wonderful!
Like to see photos of the season when they had contact with Paul Brusck.

Conhço o Paulo há muito tempo, por volta de 1982, ele esteve em minha casa conversando muitas horas e tomamos todos liquidos alcoólicos, só faltou os pós barba...

Encontrei com ele em 2008 em duas ocasiões, fotos abaixo...
