Artstamp is a project initiated by the Danish artist and gallerist Sam Jedig in 2007. By making his own stamps as well as inviting other artist to do stamps Jedig has revitalised a medium of communication that in the age of the Internet seems like an anachronism. Not only that, he has revitalised it as a platform for creative expression.
Measured with a traditional ruler, Artstamp is arguably the world’s smallest exhibition space. However, in terms of distribution it can be argued that Artstamp is potentially the world’s largest exhibition space. Putting into both poetic and political play this double quality of being a small object and global means of communication is the concept behind Artstamp.
