Mail Art Gallery

Do you do "mail art"? 

Mail Art is a process where strangers (or friends) mail each other handmade art on the back of a postcard. Here are some examples of mail art I have received or discovered.

HOW TO DO MAIL ART:

 
Good Mail Day: A Primer for Making Eye-Popping Postal Art 

 The term “mail art” refers to pieces of art sent through the mail rather than displayed or sold in traditional venues. Mail artists often use inexpensive and recycled materials including postcards, collage, rubber stamps, and photocopied images. Mail art is a fun way to connect with people in every corner of the globe. Readers will learn to create decorated and illustrated envelopes, faux postage and artistamps, find penpals, make a mail art kit, and much more!
