Return To Sender

Otto David Sherman is an outstanding NYC-based mail artist who just so happens to be a close personal friend of my fam’s. Often, he’ll unexpectedly mail me and my mom original works which usually bear homemade stamps that ridicule Nazis and other assorted fascholes.

His latest piece is exceptionally relevant and, some might say, humorous, as it features ‘cancelled’ stamps bearing images of assassinated Hamas leaders Sheikh Ahmed Yassin and Abdel Aziz Rantisi, as well as a Hitler-stache sporting Yassir Arafat who appears to be awaiting his own imminent ‘cancellation’.

You can find more examples of Otto’s extraordinary work (and I mean extraordinary in the most literal sense) on his website, ottoart.com.

  1. acknowledgement? c’mon. arafat speaks out of both sides of his mouth. his public acknowledgement of israel was no more than a p.r. tactic. the palestinian authority has never truly ‘acknowledged’ israel at all.
