Hand-Painted Envelope & Prints by Ruud Janssen (Breda, Netherlands)

Mail art by IUOMA founder Ruud Janssen (Breda, Netherlands)


September 28, 2017 - Here is another gorgeous addition to the collection of hand-painted envelopes by Ruud Janssen you can find online. As IUOMA founder, artist and mail art scholar, Ruud Janssen needs no introduction in the mail art network. He is a great friend to both my MinXus-Lynxus and Asemic Front blogs. In fact, he contributed work to launch Asemic Front and gave a huge boost to Trashpo and DKult during the Karnival of Trash era.

Ruud Janssen has been doing FAB pieces that integrate images from the digital world with visual poetry as well as asemics. He included two prints of this kind in the package:

And in the mail art tradition, personal notes as well:

Most networkers know that Ruud Janssen is especially strong in the stamp area. He usually manages to send interesting material of this type in his envelopes. We can get a glimpse of current IUOMA promotional material as well. I especially like the recycling of the classic Fluxus stamp design:

As ever, many thanks to Ruud Janssen!!!
