Guido Vermeulen's mail art envelopes are like worlds into themselves and at the same time they are part of the much larger whole.

Guido's paintings are like finding images in the clouds
(a comment by Kathleen D. Johnson, USA, on IUOMA)

Guido does not paint monsters but spirits and ghosts, full of love, tenderness and compassion
(LIZA LEYLA during a conversation, Belgium)

His ability to express emotions through painting is a beautiful gift. Allowing oneself to feel sadness is the most direct route through grief. His paintings feel peaceful and kind.


My life is shifting... Your work is intangible, ethereal, cosmically rewarding. i eat it up & savor it like a great sandwich! It made my day!

Thank you for the TALISMAN painting on the envelope. It is real cool and creepy at the same time. I haven’t seen a piece of abstract capture such as pain and emotion so well since I visited the museum of art in Toledo. Bravo!

I suppose you could characterize Guido's painting style as expressionist. I know he is very interested in dreams as a source for art and poetry, and these particular chapter pages seem like shadowy dream corridors filled with shifting images and scenes. The Michaux quotes work as a counterpoint, Guido's art is taking over when the limits of language have been reached.

Guido’s art expressions are always poems and they show us the reality of our real faces and souls (Mariana Serban, Romania)

His titles have both inspired and educated me (Alicia Starr, USA)

What I saw when the light went KO 1-8

Wellicht kleine hartaanval gehad gisteravond, gelukkig in een restaurant in aanwezigheid van vrienden. Begon hevig te transpireren, licht ging uit, gevallen van de stoel op de vloer.
Werd wakker en probeerde te begrijpen. Vroeg een cola. Langzaam klaarde alles op (suikerspiegel te laag en bloedruk slechts 10/6). Weigerde met de opgetrommelde ambulanciers naar hospitaal te gaan. Kreeg thuis opnieuw last rond 1u30, at een pot ijskreem leeg, voelde me toen pas echt beter.
Pijn aan de hartstreek. Kortademig, allez the works dus.
Life is fun!


Trying to catch some of the remaining light
when I fainted 3 days ago
because of a severe drop in sugar levels, blood pressure
and minor heart failure ...

Not to alarm you all but this would not be me
if I did not try to translate this into some art.
the last painted envelope says it all, says nothing in fact, so says it all
