London-based artist, Mr. Bingo, is an eternal naughty schoolboy that provoked numerous times our attention. “I will send an offensive postcard to the first person to reply to this message,” he tweeted one drunken night back in 2011 and thus, a new Internet art project, aptly titled Hate Mail, was born. The response was overwhelming, so he realized that people really wanted to be offended by post. He then opened a service on his website, where strangers could pay for an anonymous offensive postcard. Nowadays, the widely received service opens sporadically and for only a few minutes at a time because the demand is so high. These offensive and skillfully drawn postcards can be sent to solicitors or friends. Recently Mr. Bingo launched a book, filled with the abhorrent witticisms that make the project great.
