The second e-mail I received on Sunday was from "Martinou and his trope of budding artists" from "somewhere in the South of France". Here's Martinou's message, translated from French to English:
Just a quick note to say thank you! The meeting with your spots that come to life, was born our TRIBE MONSTERS!
We are not very large (3 and 4) but we used to work and create
through works of artists such as Christian Voltz, Miro, Natasha Wescoat, Karla Gerard, Brancusi,
Vasarely, Kandinsky, Braque, Dubuffet, Calder, Keith Haring, Matisse, Klimt, Niki de Saint Phalle, Laeti Flo Daniel Picon, Christine Barres ...
You are now part of our artistic repertoire! Here A little insight into our productions, inspired by your MONSTER JOBS!
Martinou and his band of artists
Wow, what an honor to have my work as part of these young artists' curriculum! Dubuffet, Calder, Haring, Kandisnky and the like aren't bad company at all, either (and are personal favorites). Below are the pics Martinou sent me.
