I was delighted to come across this fabulous article on the Instagram blog yesterday. It features Nasya Kopteva (@nasyakopteva) and details the wonderful mail art that she creates today. Nasya and her friend Sasha exchange ‘painted post stories and try to surprise and delight each other’. Nasya explains, “I am a completely visual person. For me, Instagram is the most convenient way to freeze moments and share visual information–energy, feelings and beauty—with others who are in search of it.”
Take a look at some of the examples of their beautiful art below. I love their friendship and I love how they are using modern technology combined with traditional materials to create the most wonderful gifts to share with one another. You can see more of their wonderful art here.
