my REAL wall Featured Artist - Gareth Hopkins

As part of the 3 year my REAL wall retrospective, I enter the Featured Artists galleries and the very first artist to step up to the wall is Gareth Hopkins, a UK based artist and illustrator. The reason he's the first featured artist in the retrospective is because my REAL wall would have not been nearly as interesting a place so fast if it hadn't been for him.

 

Gareth was the first person to respond to my Gumtree ad for post and slowly introduced me to Postcrossing and mailart.

 

This is by no means all the artwork and post he's sent me, as I reserved some of his artworks for other galleries I'll be sending in, notably, Send me your Status, but this includes some important works, including the original letter and the one in which he introduces me to The Crying of Lot 49 by Thomas Pynchon and mailart, as well as 2 copies of the Intercorstal, an ongoing comic that he has produced.
