Christian Pietzke: A history in postcards

This is quite a large group of only postcards sent to me by the postal artist Christian Pietzke. Christian and I have been in contact through the mail for over two years now but after I moved to Berlin it make it easier and more affordable to stay in contact. I have received more mail from him then anyone else, so this collection is only perhaps about a quarter of what I have from him in the last year and a half. Christian often sends out his postal art from Prenzlauerberg in Berlin where he has lived for over 30 years in the same apartment building but sometimes he sends stuff from Halle Germany where his father lives when he visits him. The work has a great broad range of color and is style may fluctuate based on the seasons from abstract works, collage and comic like drawings of people in the city of Berlin and often humorous self portraits. In this group featured below there are 10 postcards that have the theme of Germany history which is quite energetic and Christian knows the huge interest I have in history in general so they are a nice gift. In the past I have often featured Christian's work and I suggest you check out some of the other posts in the past of his work. Since there is so many pieces I have make groups to upload on the blog so you will see yet more in the future from Christian Pietzke on this blog.
