MinXus Mail Bag: This is Trashpo by Eduardo Cardoso (Sines, Portugal)

Eduardo Cardoso - DKult - 1

Visual poetry by Eduardo Cardoso (Sines, Portugal)

Eduardo Cardoso is a versatile artist and visual poet who seems always eager to challenge himself and his audience. We want to share the contents of several extraordinary missives he kindly sent, beginning with this that mainly concerns DKult – a mail-art club dedicated to Trashpo.

The opening scan (above) is one of Eduardo Cardoso’s signature minimalist visual poems. We are pleased as punch to add it to the collection.

This DKult stamp uses the Fluxus network stamp as a basis for the design.

In addition to the red stamp shown above, Eduardo is a master of cryptic stamps and symbols, which can be seen on the envelope he sent:

Many thanks to Eduardo Cardoso!

    Eduardo has to be one of the contemporary greats. Minimalism might look easy, but try doing it well.

    We have two more books from him that will eventually be posted.

    Beautiful, and it all adds up to The Crucible for me.
