b. Hancock, Michigan, USA

I am a surrealist painter, cartoonist and maker of chocolate coulages, cubomanias, drawings (including entopic graphomanias and other methods of the Romanian surrealists[?], and a drawing done with food colouring), fumages[?] and ASCII art. I have made two films, The Dead Man and The Erotic Life of the Eskimo, and designed a watch in honour of Ahn Choong-Kun[?] (published by Idealist Press International, Ltd.). Two of my articles, "Are You Crazy?: Mental Illness and Whiteness" and "Seattle 1999 - Just the Beginning," and one of my drawings, "The Breakfast Club," were published in Surrealist Subversions, edited and introduced by Ron Sakolsky[?], and I was a contributor to the Treatise of Pataphysical Anatomy, published by SpiderWeb Productions. I am the author of the broadside poem "Blair House" (illustrated by Allison Boyer) and the book The Octopus Frets: political poems (published in 1994) and The Tailgating Spinster (published in 2003 by Fiji Island Mermaid Press). I designed the cover for the e-book Chapter 1 of the Anemone Sidecar (http://www.ravennapress.com/snowmonkey/works/as1.pdf) (published by Ravenna Press), and you can see my digital book Me: An Autobiography (http://www.fimp.net/medanboyer1) at the Fiji Island Mermaid Press website (http://www.fimp.net).

I have also been active in mail art and am listed in the International Directory of Artistamp Creators (http://jas.faximum.com/jas.d/idac_art.htm). Since 2002 I have served as the Chief Executive Officer of the International Union of Mail Artists.

My bookplate (http://www.nottwo.demon.co.uk/Text/exlib8.htm) was exhibited at the Ex Libris (http://www.nottwo.demon.co.uk/Text/exlib8.htm) exhibit at the HUB Gallery in Geelong, Victoria, Australia.

When I attended Colorado College I worked on the Catalyst and wrote a review of an exhibit (http://www.geocities.com/Paris/6721/Alexandra_Nechita) by Alexandra Nechita[?]. I also designed a poster[?] for the screening of L'Age d'Or there.

I received a BA from Curry College, where I took a class in Digital Imaging: Photoshop (AC (http://www.curry.edu/academic/acadcomp/acadcomp.orig) 2738), two of the computer graphics[?] I made in partial fulfillment of the requirements of which were The Scalpeles History White-clothed Like a Dove and with Three Owls (http://www.geocities.com/Paris/6721/Scalpel--the_scalpeles_history_white-clothed_like_a_dove_and_with_three_owls.gif) and the Alas Poor Yorick! background of the page on which my article (originally printed in the Currier Times, of which I was the Arts and Entertainment editor), "Curry Hockey Skids" (http://www.geocities.com/Paris/6721/Curry_Hockey_Skids) is reprinted.

In 1997 I curated the "Surrealism: Books, Objects, Posters and Pamphlets from Four Continents" exhibit at the East Library and Information Center (http://library.ppld.org/aboutyourlibrary/hourslocations/east.asp) in Colorado Springs. In 2003 I signed a petition (http://www.twokmi-kimali.de/) protesting the pending sale of the contents of Andre Breton's studio at 42 rue Fontaine in Paris.

I wrote on the surrealist implications of the Pyschedelic Furs[?]' music: "The War Against Mrs. London is Still On (http://www.magneticfields.org/cgi-bin/kforum.exe?sess=267600404o16605&viewmode=normal&action=list&object=message&threadid=1&topicid=1&forumid=2&maxentries=25&nextaction=createapply&sort=threadmessage)".

I have collaborated with other surrealists, having made an unnamed (http://zazie.at/Collaborations/DanielBoyerZazie/00_WebPages/DanielZazie.htm) computerized exquisite corpse with Zazie[?] (in the Special Editions section of the website of whom I have the artwork A Plan For Armaments 1932 (http://www.zazie.at/SpecialEditions/DanielBoyer/00_WebPages/MinesotaMine.htm)) and a computerized exquisite corpse, The Transparent Gulags Melt Before the Very Sharp Blade of the Figure-Skating Wode and the Funerals of Two Senators Take Place not Very Far from the Cottager's Home, with Willem den Broeder; and signed collective surrealist statements including "POETRY MATTERS!: On the Media Persecution of Amiri Baraka (http://www.surrealism-usa.org/pages/news_poetry%20_matters)."

I contributed a drawing (http://www.zyarts.com/ebook/daniel) to the Picasso e-book (http://www.zyarts.com/ebook), commemorating the 120th anniversary of the birth of Pablo Picasso in 2001.

It was at my suggestion that Blue Feathers SE2, a special edition on the events of September 11, 2001 (http://www.magneticfields.org/blue/SE2/publish/SE2page6) was published.
