Here is a new group of works by Angela Behrendt based out of Hannover Germany. I love how the use of sewing and textile are often used in her work and as you can see below there is a hand made patch of Alfed Jarry as well as graffiti found in Berlin Germany. Street art often is a theme that seems inspire Angela's works as well as the works of Hannover native artist Kurt Schwitters and the infamous American based postal artist Ray Johnson.
One of the last images in this group of postal art is Angela's rendition of a poster designed by Berlin based artist and animator Chris Eales. The poster was from a series of cinema nights that I curated at an artist cafe in Weissensee. One of the films we showed was Ed Woods "Glen or Glenda". Chris would make woodcut print movie posters for each of our film nights and I sent one to Angela Behrendt and she made this lovely postcard using color pen and sewing the outline. I feel it is a great tribute to the film as well as Chris Eales's work.
So you can find references to Ed Wood, Ray Johnson, Alfed Jarry and Berlin Street art among other things in these works but can you find a random picture of Noel Fielding on this page?
