Mail-art by IUOMA member Moan Lisa (Des Moines, Iowa, USA)
February 1, 2014 - Moan Lisa is an extraordinarily prolific mail-artist who coordinates an astonishing number of calls and projects. The ongoing Fake Andy Warhol call seems especially popular or maybe it seems that way to me because I like it so much. Displayed here are selections from a sheaf of fake Warhols Moan Lisa made and sent me. Included are portraits of contemporary mail-artists you might recognize as well as revered avant artists not associated with mail-art. I can identity most of the individuals, but not all of them. So I leave the identification to you.
MinXus-Lynxus issued a statement of unconditional support for Moan Lisa. This was in response to Moan's censorship issues with Google and then, later, Facebook; but Moan also has many fans connected with MinXus. Thus, Moan Lisa was issued an official MinXus stamp.
Without further commentary, here are the fake Warhols:
