Postmasters is very pleased to present a show of haiku wall paintings by Rafaël Rozendaal. Catching a daily moment, freezing a thought, a shortcut from one brain to another, easily transferable raw data, truly mobile, universal and indestructible, haikus are an essence in text. Artifacts deteriorate, but words are forever.

Rozendaal’s art, be it his websites, his lenticular paintings, his installations, or his animations, are always about focus, locating an essence of a thought or an image. For this show all it takes is a color and a font.

Rozendaal’s haiku rise above the noise and chaos of contemporary art.
“It’s a joy to write them, so little trouble, just an idea,” he says, “I find comfort in simplicity… it’s an escape.”

The exhibition is accompanied by a $10 book of almost one hundred haiku.
