My best wishes for your three exhibitions. I took part only in one mail art project (refugees) because since spring I was so busy in my exhibitions to not have time to participate.Excuse me, but I was with you with my soul.I shall send another work for the Biennal in Greece. What dimension, please? My best wishes and hoping to hear from you many greetings
Hi ThomaiHere a little text for you in english and in french in you don' t anderstend my translater.The mailart is a common artwork between the creative artist and the post office, a artwork which life even after its creation, an unimportant artwork. So unimportant that it intrigues, attracts, surprises. What pushes artists from around the world has to be interested suddenly in Argonautes and the Greek culture, with tightening the hand with people which they do not know, to send a smile to the visitors of this exposure? A question launched to a country which saw being born the largest philosophers and of which I think you pose too.Le mailart est une ouevre commune entre l’ artiste créateur et la poste, une oeuvre qui vie même après sa création, une oeurvre insignifiante. Tellement insignifiante qu’ elle intrigue, attire, surprend. Qu’ est ce qui pousse des artistes du monde entier a s’ intéresser subitement aux Argonautes et à la culture Grecque, à tendre la main à des gents qu’ ils ne connaissent pas, à envoyer un sourire aux visiteurs de cette exposition? Une question lancée à un pays qui a vu naître les plus grands philosophes et dont je pense vous vous posez aussi.
The Creative Network
A creative influx that really brings forward the artist in you. It is an amorphous international network, involving thousands of participants through the world though initially evolved between the 1950s and the 1990s. Though it's really not important that you have to be a great artist to be a part of mail art or get involved in this creative de-stressing exercise. Art is very subjective and it can be inspired with any event, place or even movements, including Dada and Fluxus. It is a very active movement which really needs a healthy flow of ideas and message between the participants.
I could go on and on, it is a use of your creativity. Mail art does not cost more than the postage. There is no size limit but it should be postable. There is no time limit on the creation, can be 5 minutes, it could take a week, it could take a whole month.
Mail art is an expressive medium to send arty things through mail. It is a fun filled means of communication that redefines the whole concept of sending messages. In this era of globalization being a part of a large global community is really important to share culture, lifestyle and interests with each other in a peaceful and creative way and mail art really gives that creative freedom.
best wishes for the project,

MITO ANTICO E MODERNO
La Mail Art approda nella terra della Classicità e non dell’Accademismo. Un ritorno naturale in una terra che da sempre è da noi considerata la madre della nostra cultura. Ci accomuna un modo di pensare, riflettere, meditare, come la Mail Art accomuna i mailartisti nel network internazionale. Ormai la Mail Art è entrata nei musei ed è un’ espressione storicizzata di cui nessuno può negare l’esistenza. L’ Età dell’Oro è diventata Mito, la Mail Art è altrettanto Mitica.
ANCIENT AND MODERN MYTH
Mail Art lands in Greece, in the Country of classicism, not the one of academicism. It is a natural coming back in the land that has always been considered as the Mother of our culture. It is a way to think, to ponder, to meditate that connects us as Mail Art connects Mailartists in the International Network.
Mail Art has entered museums yet and has become an expression engraved in the history of art. The Golden Age became Myth and Mail Art is now a Myth too.
I’m very happy to be part of so selected committee. I have a dream that all the people in the world willreceive and appreciate cards from unknown artistsliving in other side of earth. In this time, originalart will be free, outside museums and exhibitionrooms. Artists will be grateful in the moment childrensmile by their works. Yes, I’m very happy and grateful being part ofprojects in Greece, where all the western civilizationwas born. Thank you all the organization and Greek people forthis opportunity to show my works and from my mates ofthe whole world.
