Kwon Kyung Yup is a long time favored artist by many of the EK staff here (featured previously in April 2010 and March 2011).

If you ask all of us in EK office as a group if we like movies...chances are someone might just throw a chair at you because we're psychotic about movies. Well, Mr. Sauli takes some of our favorite and most classic motion pictures (in this case, 2001: A Space Odessy, No Country for Old Men, and Amelie) and transforms them into a different visual art. By now, I'm sure you know by the heading that Mr. Sauli will be exhibiting his insane Mimetrics pieces for the dopest of the dope show, LIAISON Amsterdam!

Saturno Buttò at LIAISON Amsterdam

If by some miracle chance that EMPTY KINGDOM unchained me from my desk and allowed me to travel over seas, I would undoubtedly go straight to Amsterdam to check out Saturno Buttò's work in person at the upcoming LIAISON Amsterdam Show in April. It wasn't planned for his EK spotlight to be shown on a Sunday...it just happened to be coincidence that it did, and it seems only right. In many of Buttò's paintings, fetish objects and practices are often placed in a religious context that goes beyond just merely wanting to achieve a shock effect.

It's no secret that we, here, at EMPTY KINGDOM are huge fans of worldly art. That's why we're unabashedly excited to spotlight the upcoming LIAISON Amsterdam Show (April 2-10, 2011), which is packed with artists that EMPTY KINGDOM endorses (and have featured previously on our site)! The LIAISON exhibition is a collaboration with four other galleries to showcase classical and modern art side to side. Each of the four galleries are presenting a crossover between classical and contemporary figurative art, surrealism, realism, and related movements. Traditional techniques are exhibited alongside digital art in the industrial Loods 6 building in the beautiful city of Amsterdam. The LIAISON exhibition will first be launched in Amsterdam, and will then travel to Antwerp and Miami, presented sometimes in new formations, but always with the same objective.
