iuoma.org – Interested in Mail-Art?

welcome to the International Union of Mail-Artists. This Blog gives you information and links to all activities undertaken by Ruud Janssen, who started with Mail-Art in 1980 and is still active. Since 1970 working with computers too, so you can acces large amounts of data....

Mail-Art and Art

Mail-Art for me is a conceptual artform in which I feel at home. Besides that I gradually have created also lots of art (drawings, pantings, silkscreen prints, etc) which I sometimes also share within the Mail-Art network.

A portfolio of my work can be found at:

When Mail-Art and Art collide it comes in the form of e.g. acrylic painted envelopes which I actually send out thoughtout the world. They have landed in quite some collections and are sometimes exhibited too.

outgoing mail-art to José vanden Broucke – Belgium (1997)

1997_RJ_to_TempleOne of the older envelopes that I sent out to José vanden Broucke in Belgium. I already worked a lot with acrylic paint then. If you are interested in seeing more outgoing mail-art I suggest you Google for my name and the subject you look for. The complete set I sent out is thousands of envelopes large and is all over the earth. I documented a lot to in digital form and that is placed on blogs that were started over the years. See for a good start the old IUOMA blog that is hosted at blogger.
