  • description

    The sea, at the same time that it nourishes man, animals and fishes, swallows swimmers, seafarers and migrants who venture into freedom.

    The sun, fire in the sky, gives life, but a fire in a tree, can become the hell itself.

    Human can be the one who creates life, but with the war, fights and choices, takes it back.

  • description

    Printing techniques were never far apart from the art world as some might think. Woodcut, typography, silkscreen, lithograph, stencil, rubber stamps, 3D printing, digital printing, ... are a short list of various means of reproduction within our reach that are also explored for their artistic expression. Although some of these media may have arisen purely for the sake of reproduction and others with marketing intentions ... others had arise with a purely artistic vision. However, none of these techniques, sooner or later, escaped artists who use them for creating multiples or for their material expressiveness.

    It is therefore with this call and with this question in mind that we invite you to question multiples in artistic creation and printing techniques as expression, either through artworks or written statements.

    On our previous curated mailart and artbymail open call and exhibition entitled "Hate Mail? for ya Fat F#uck", we've dealt with similar content as we've shown Claudio Parentela's artwork in the form of digital prints of his own digital collages... in a way raising the question: if physical prints of artwork meant to prevail only among the digital world may or not be considered art? We've also laid out a consonant scheme while presenting rough quality prints from scans of Rachelline Centomo's personal international mailart open call "La Muerte / Mientras la Vida nos Dure" that had happened at Mexico the previous year.

    Exhibitions on tour through Portugal are ALREADY confirmed. We'll keep you updated by email. There will be a digital book to be shared and spread around free of charge to all artists and partners.

    "Nothing" was beyond time. Alone even in the light. It was the other name of finding yourself. The last point that you ever dreamed of being. Taking his age from here to there and every single possession that he has never had. The last stage, a single syllable "nothing".

    Yesterday I started a new art mail project - "One day I had sex". Everything is simple.


    1) you can download a file and print 1 or 2 postcards. (2 submissions per one person - max)

    2) you recall one of those sexual experiences or fantasies that you'd like to remember - and share

    3) fill the postcard with your text

    4) send it to me


    At the end of June, I will issue the final results as an online exhibition on onedayihadsex.site and will share an online catalog with all participants, who took part in this project. All texts can be written in your own language, but please, write it clearly so that it can be read and translated into English afterward :)

    At this 2020’s edition, the Amanita Bunker exhibition returns to the streets of this small village reinforcing the artistic bombings of the previous editions. Authors are invited to create artwork regarding the requested theme and join the yearly Mushroom Festival.

    Amanita Bunker, wears robes of a fictional political party. The Amanites manifest themselves and demand distinction and promise improvements on the village. In the form of stickers, pins, posters, slogans, political propaganda and other equally ridiculous but serious paraphernalia ... artists are invited to participate by sending works that will eventually be scattered through the streets in the form of propaganda.
