Mail art by IUOMA member William Mellott (Tainan, Taiwan)
July 29, 2019 - This wonderful card came from William Mellott’s current headquarters in Taiwan. But I understand he was actually raised in the Seattle (or Portland?) area of the United States West Coast and has participated in mail art for some time.
William Mellott is a vital contributor to the contemporary mail art scene. I have been admiring his work from afar via the IUOMA-Ning gallery & blogs. We have even had the opportunity to exchange some electronic banter; but as the great Grigori Antonin used to say, “The proof is in the paper!” And here I have some material culture to document.
William is doing notable & very creative work with stamps (a foundation of mail art). This stamp piece certainly works as visual poetry.
