About « Mail Art »

Mail art is an artistic correspondence where both the envelope and the contents become an artistic expression of support placing equal value on text and image. This form of expression was inspired by the practices of soldiers during the war.  They would draw on postcards and envelopes sent to their families to share what they were not able to express with words and in order to avoid censure. 

Mail art often uses the following mediums: collage, photocopies, seals, stamps, visual work on the envelope, scripture, typewriters, stencils, stationery, adhesives, etc.
