MinXus Mail Bag: Fake Andy Warhols from Moan Lisa (Des Moines, Iowa, USA)

Moan - 2.1.2014 - 1

Mail-art by Moan Lisa (Des Moines, Iowa, USA)

Moan Lisa is an extraordinarily prolific mail-artist who coordinates an astonishing number of calls and projects. The ongoing Fake Andy Warhol call seems  especially popular or maybe it seems that way to us because we like it so much. Displayed here are selections from a sheaf of fake Warhols Moan Lisa made and sent us. Included are portraits of contemporary mail-artists you might recognize as well as revered avant artists not associated with mail-art. We can identity most of the individuals, but not all of them. So we leave this as a puzzle for Tenderfoots.

MinXus-Lynxus issued a statement of unconditional support for Moan Lisa. This was in response to Moan’s censorship issues with Google and then, later, Facebook. We are also big fans of Moan’s art, writing and projects. Thus, Moan Lisa was issued an official MinXus stamp. We are grateful and thrilled with Moan’s acceptance of MinXus and work on our behalf.

Without further commentary, here are the fake Warhols:
