I grew up in the home counties around London during the 50's and 60's. Went to several art schools including Southend ,Chelsea and Manchester. Trained as a painter and printmaker but now mostly using collage. Collect novelty songs and old mail art amongst other things too numerous to mention.
Sad news about John who passed away yesterday. One of my earliest mail art contacts back in 1983 or so. I think it was Michael Scott who gave me his address and told me how wonderful and enigmatic his letters and collages were. He was a friend of Ray Johnson and In the Pop Art book by Kablick? he is mentioned by Ray at a stilt performance in Central Park "Will John Evans tattoo his stilts?" referring to Johns tattoo of a bleeding dagger he made himself in High School.Excellent interview HERE that Ruud Janssen did with John a few years ago.
