Art and the philosophy of life

Mark Powell does extraordinary drawings on vintage envelopes dating as far back as the 1800s – this one a 1965 fold-over airmail. The London-based artist has endless facility for communicating the history of these craggy, elderly faces, in all their folds and wrinkles. Such beautiful work.
