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

(a comment by NANCY BELL SCOTT, USA, on the IUOMA network)

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)

Liefde en haat


Ik zie haar avondstonden niet
in mijn toegesnoerde hand
maar weet dat zij daar slaapt
als een zwart paard tussen witte
knokkels en kreukels in een kleurloos listig behang.

De schommelende schrimpende zon pronkt
met een weinig licht tussen de spleten van de kamer
waar wij ooit samen sliepen als broer en zus
in de beschermende nis van duisternis.
De zogenaamde zonde van het lijf is een schande
voor hun dwangmatige uitvinders.

Ik zie hun bibberende strot niet
in mijn toegeknepen vuist,
voel juist de dunne drek lopen
van hun menshatende doctrines.

Ik heb de liefde lief.
Al de rest is hulpeloze haat
& spoelwater voor de godsdienstgoot.
