What is mail art?

What is mail art?

Populist artistic art movement that is centered on sending work, though small scale postal service. It was initially developed from Fluxus between 1950s-1960s and has since then evolved and developed to become the present day global art movement. Ray Johnson was the first mail artist and his New York School is considered as the first network conscious of mail artists. Mail artists greatly rely on a network as a way of exchanging their artwork.

Monotype

Refers to a printmaking that is made by painting or drawing on a nonabsorbent, smooth surface. Historically, the surface was an etching plate of copper, but these days, the surface can vary from acrylic to zinc or glass. Image is transferred to a sheet of paper where the two are pressed by use of printing press. The process creates a unique print called monotype. The initial pressing removes most of the ink. 

Mezzotint

Mezzotint is the process of reverse engraving copper or steel plates so that relief illustrations will show light and shadow. The master plate surface is prepared so it will print solid black. Gray and white areas are prepared differently to show light and shadow.
