The Postman

The Postman biography
In 2018, a crack commando artist collective was sent to prison by a copyright lawyer for a crime they didn’t commit.

The collective managed to escape the maximum security dungeon and settled into the Brighton underground.

Still being wanted by the police to this very day, they survive as wheat paste artists of fortune, adding both colour and love onto the streets they know so well.

The Postman Interview

The Postman Interview
How are you doing now?
After the initial shock of having such a drastic change to our freedom and lifestyle, we are glad to say that a new normality has finally arrived.

Whats lockdown like for you?
We divide our days into screen and studio time.  We’re finally getting all those things done that were previously put low on the to do list.

Are you able to work/ where is your studio normally? What's your current set up.
We had to move our studio into a temporary space in our landlord’s conservatory. We feel lucky to have been given this opportunity of working in the garden in this gorgeous weather.

What projects are you working on now?
We got lots of time to connect with people virtually. Thos allows us to do different collabs with artists we met on our travels. We are working on projects that we had planned over the past year but previously never quite got round to doing.

Is lock down / coronavirus having an influence on your work?
The intention of our work is to spread love and positivity. We have made a few artworks like Dorothy from The Wizard of OZ and Kevin from Home Alone. Both were clearly inspired by the current crisis.

Which artists/ instagram accounts are you most addicted to now?
We enjoy seeing what our Brighton local friends @broken_hartist get up to.

What are you listening to/ reading/ watching when you can?
We can’t stop watching the news even though we are fully aware that they aren’t doing us much good.

And anything else you'd like to add!
Thanks for inviting us to this project along with so many talented artist’s whose work we admire. We are all in this together x
