For a period of thirty years Marten Post worked as artist and teacher in the vibrant international multi cultural community of Atlantic College in Wales. He received postcards from all corners of the globe addressed to him and his family. Being aware of the importance of recycling he started to use the cards to mix paint and try out different marks. The small glossy surfaces proved to be excellent painting palets and also resulted in changing the initial image. In a flash of inspiration he saw that his name encompassed the word art and post, The idea of the martenpostcard© was born. martenpostcard© copyright Marten Post  2011 All rights reserved
