London artist Mark Powell cleverly re-purposes old, used, and often tattered ephemera. Using cancelled envelopes, maps, and other found items as his canvases, he produces striking, life-like, and inked drawings. His sketches are made using only a Bic Biro pen, often incorporating the original stamps, logos, and addresses.

After having rotated through a hundred jobs or so, U.K. Based artist Mark Powell, enrolled in University courses by sheer accident. After viewing there studio facilities, he decided to do art full-time. Since then, he has been able to capture the world as he sees it everyday.

We have shown some of Mark Powell's work on the site before, but we just caught a new batch of Powell's envelope portraits, using a Bic Biro pen on vintage, yellow aged envelopes. The envelopes all come from older European mail networks.
