James, a Graphic Design graduate from University of the Arts London, has recently worked on a series of striking Mail Art works, depicting unreal, futuristic cityscapes. Take a look at his hand-illustrated envelopes below. Take part in the Mail Art project by clicking their this facebook link, where you will find the postal address to send your work to.
The International Mail Art Project is managed by father and son, Kevin and James Gillen. In 2013, they launched their Mail Art community page and over the past six years they’ve received hundreds of postal artworks, sent by people from all over the world. The works are exhibited online and in gallery exhibitions. Kevin first exhibited postal artworks in 1973 at Ferens Gallery (Hull, England). His work was reviewed in the press with the memorable headline ‘It’s nicely framed, but is it art?’.
