Graska Paulska - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Graszka Paulska is an artist based out of Poland who has an amazing ability to create both realistic females figures and haunting deformed creatures in her paintings. I find her paintings mesmerizing because some of the women portrayed in these paintings seem to relish the power from their situation despite their struggle.

Robert Steven Connett - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
It was clear as day when I first saw Robert Steven Connett's paintings. His work appears to be a window for us to peer into his microscopic and technological world. Plus, I am a huge fan of color and texture, and Connett executes both fabulously well.

Scott Radke - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
I guess I wasn't being attentive enough, but when I first saw Scott Radke's pieces, I thought they were paintings rather than actual sculptures, as they are. Radke uses nice earth tones in his sculptural pieces, and sticks to muted color palettes for much of his body of work.

Art Blog - Erik Sandberg - Empty Kingdom
Simply put, Erik Sandberg creates paintings that look freakish. His work is eerily surreal mainly due to the fact that all of his subjects look like close relatives of Sasquatch or Chewbacca who went on one of those 5k Color Run events.

Brad Kunkle Revisit

Art Blog - Brad Kunkle - Empty Kingdom
As a sculptor and painter, I must say that Brad Kunkle's (previously featured back in February 2012) beautiful work flutters along the lines of sculpture. I have not seen these paintings in person, but I bet the experience is one-of-a-kind. The surface of these oil paintings are embellished with gold and silver leaf, and thus, affected areas will shift from lighting in the space as viewers walks across the room.
