Berlin Based Postal Artist: Christian Pietzke, Teil 1

I first started receiving mail from Christian Pietzke two years ago, when I lived in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. After moving to Berlin I was able to meet him in person. Christian is a pretty cool guy, he gre up in the DDR and he use to be a school teacher, teaching art to kids. He is well read in art and know a lot about postal art history. He has lived in the same apartment building for the last 30 years in Prenzlauerberg and today he works part time at a used book store.

I love the varies work he makes and sends and since I moved to Berlin he sends the most post of anyone I know at the moment. He also often sends postcards of German artists, especially DDR artists so I can broaden my knowledge of German art.
