Mail Art is the creative process by which it is used as a means of transmitting the traditional postal service and, therefore, postcards, envelopes, stamps and postmarks are some of the medium on which is possible expression of this art. The artists mainly use techniques such as collages, painting, drawing, photos, writing, textil, recycle art, origami, digital art etc.
"Art in the Mail" is my personal project of Mail Art, I will create ArtWorks in small format, where painting, drawing and collage predominate, they are sent to different artists and galleries throughout the world as to future events related to the art movement in question.

 Sent to the Mail Art Call, titled "Planet Earth is a Large Island with a Huge Ocean Around", the exhibithion will take place at space of "Cabana dos Parodiantes" Salvaterra de Magos, Portugal, starting in October 2011, and will be there one month. It is likely that exhibition will be extended to other public and private places in Portugal.
 The organization has the idea to produce a book with all Mail Art received, but this isn't yet confirmed.
