Mail art by Mikel Untzilla (Euskadi – Spain)
As part of the Karnival of Trash, I am thrilled to share this wonderful visual-textual work by Mikel Untzilla of Euskadi. (This is the legendary Basque Country of Northern Spain.) The Karnival of Trash has attracted much incredible work from artists and visual poets in Spain. This is a great honor and fascinating to see the work being created in this part of the world.
“ORIGINAL COPY” certainly provides a thematic center for the work. While it is great visual poetry, Mikel Untzilla incorporates found material and chance operations that show an affinity to Trashpo. The calligraphy also brings us into the asemic realm:
Many thanks to Mikel Untzilla!
