Writing with Barboza

ART MAIL

The Art Mail was designed to promote a new relationship between the artist and the

people.

For Barboza it was a type of poetry that not necessarily had to be written with words,

but which could be written with an image.

He combined knowledge with Julien Blaine . Blaine traveled all around South America

and Europe handing out photos of Barboza’s work and address. This is how Barboza

started communicating with different artists from different part of the world.

Barboza decided to publish a tabloid of “Buzón” of everything he had received. In the

first edition. Barboza wrote Buzón that was a publication of art mail and provided a

space for all types of non-commercial art. tArt Mail was created at an international

level to broaden the possibilities of communication through creative language.

The second and last edition of the tabloid Buzòn, Barboza explained: Postal Art or Art

Mail is the first movement in art history to be carried out simultaneously across the

world. It vindicates the true creative role of the artist at a time when art and artists

appear to be threatened by the manufacture of consumer products.

Four of Barboza’s drawings ware included in the “American Biennale of Graphic Arts”

at the Museum de la Tertulia de Cali, in Colombia. He was part of the group “Pencil

and Paper” in the Museum of Modern Art of Bogotá, Colombia and at the Museu de

Arte Contemporânea da Universidad de Sâo Paolo, Brazil.
