Artistamps by Natalie Lamanova

 We lived together more then 30 years.
He was  - my love, my husband, my best friend,  my teacher, my assistant...
My loss is huge and irretrievable. 

I'll never forget him.

Natalie Lamanova
The art of Alexander Kholopov can be seen as an example of the
finest work emerging from Mail Art.  His many innovative projects
produced work that reflected his command of composition and color,
mirroring an active intellect and imagination.  The richness of his
imagery gave us a unique vision of the world in which he lived.
Sasha was a fine artist and a generous friend who will be sadly
missed by the International Mail Art community. 
Written by Harley with images by Steve Smith.
