MinXus Mail Bag: Rare Authentic Genuine Trashpo by Jim Leftwich (Roanoke, Virginia, USA)

Mail-art by Jim Leftwich (Roanoke, Virginia, USA)

Although it is not signed and we have endured a number of mail-art pranks, we are confident – based upon examination by experts – that this recently received postcard-size piece is contemporary Trashpo created by none other than Jim Leftwich (aka Jesus Jim).

In the world of Trashpo and DKult, great significance is attached to a series of scannerbed compositions made by Jim Leftwich in 2005 using packaging debris and other trash. These later appeared on Fluxlist Europe circa 2007 and are widely considered prototypes that have had a profound influence on the Trashpo being created today, even in instances where the trashpoet is not familiar with the originals.

Certainly, Trashpo has evolved a long way from those first pieces made by Jesus Jim in 2005. Surely many have wondered: What kind of Trashpo is Jim Leftwich making nearly a decade later? Surprisingly, we have very few examples. Jim Leftwich comments on Trashpo and communicates with DKulters, yet the actual work is scare. This piece, now in the possession of DKULTNY, is a priceless addition to Trashpo. We are pleased to be able to share the image with all who are interested.
