Mail art by IUOMA member Richard Canard (Carbondale, Illinois, USA)

October 5, 2016 - Many current wave trashpoets are likely unaware that mail art legend Richard Canard aka Richard C holds an important place in the history of Trashpo, despite the fact that he is known to rub shoulders with the captivating Diane Keys and the elusive Lucy Pear. Richard C adds legitimacy and breadth to the “greatest show on earth” Karnival of Trash with this minimalist, anti-art, retro nod to Trashpo’s unadorned roots.
