Postcards (Buster Cleveland)


One of the advantages of having participated in mail art is that I’ve been able to keep all this great stuff. After all, most of it is paper and a few big boxes literally hold hundreds of missives from artists from all over the world.

Buster Cleveland was one of the better known mail artists, showing at Gracie Mansion in the East Village days and later on moving to even bigger galleries. I met him through various Bay Area Dadaists and he sent me mail from time to time. He was known for making his own postage stamps, of which you see some included here. This card is from 1980.

Hey nice to see this blurb & posted art here on Buster Eva! I'm his son Zach. He'd certainly enjoy knowing that former Mail Art colleagues still think of him....

Checked out your work---wonderful stuff. There's a bit of a shared vibe, artistically- speaking between you two if you don't mind my saying...


Anyhow, all the best & thanks...
