Mail-art by IUOMA member Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA)
May 16, 2013 - Diane Keys (aka Queen of Trash) sent me this great piece about Trashion, which ranges from constructing clothes from garbage to questioning the fashion industry. This has extended even further to Trashpo tattoos and body art. Trash lashes are another logical extension and provide the occasion for this very clever collage. Here is the reverse side:
Many thanks for another D-Klassic!
Mail-art by Borderline Grafix (Austin, Texas, USA)
Borderline Grafix sent this postcard-size piece. He seems to work primarily in collage with cryptically juxtaposed images and liberal use of stamps. Borderline Grafix has an extensive mail-art archive going back decades, and he has shared some interesting historical work. (He actually has pieces from Mike Miskowski’s Bomb Shelter Propaganda outfit.)
Borderline Grafix has taken an interest in the current practice of Trashpo and DKult. In fact, he has been initiated into the still-congealing DKULTX (DKult Texas). I am very much looking forward to seeing how this exposure will impact the evolution of his work.
Many thanks for the piece! We look forward to more exchanges.
Mail-art by Dustin “Ray” Hamby aka Dustin de Wind (Austin, Texas, USA)
I now present a manifesto by Dustin Hamby, another Texan. He sent me this piece some time ago, and I have just gotten around to documenting it. I am not sure how widely “A DRUNKPO MANIFESTO” was circulated, but I do believe it has some historical significance. Dustin has had considerable success drawing followers to the theory and practice of Drunkpo.
Dustin has taken an active role in DKult and has produced some amazing Trashpo, in addition to working in other genres.
Deepest, belated thanks to Dustin de Wind! I am glad to see him back in actions again!
