Mail art by Moan Lisa (North Liberty, Iowa, USA)

I am pleased to share the contents of an envelope recently received from the ever-prolific, ever-provocative, ever-evolving Moan Lisa. These stamps, of course, make an ambiguous commentary on the current, burning issue of gun violence, an issue with special resonance in the USA. Accordingly, Moan Lisa uses another Andy Warhol-style appropriation/homage/quotation, assuming the stamps were actually made by Moan Lisa. More specifically, the stamps conjure an Andy Warhol meets William S. Burroughs vibe. Here is a close in on one of the stamps:

As ever, thanks to Moan Lisa!
