I tried my hand at themed Mail Art. American artist Blk Olive (Madison WI) accepts only art that dedicated to olives. I made three collages with olives and sent them to the USA. Judging by the photo, the mail has reached the recipient.

Your collages with olives are great, Ilya!

I have a good supply of "Greek olives" from junk mail and food delivery ads,

good to cut up the trash and make "TrashPo" mail art :-)

Dear Bradford, I tried very hard. Sometimes I need to move away from postage stamps and make collages from some other materials and ingredients.

Looking at this mail art, I've never felt so olive.

... and at the same time tried to preserve the method of the artist Schwitters, who used "daily rubbish" in his collages. Every day gives us a piece for our collages!

Dear friends, thank you for your response! As you can see, I digress a little from postage stamps ...
