EK Sketchbook: Raphaël Vicenzi

EK_Raphael Vicenzi_SB
We featured Raphaël Vicenze back in 2010 and interviewed him in 2012 so it's been a while since we saw anything from him. We thought it would be a great time to get in touch with him and see what he had going on. His work pops off the page, more a parade of images than a series of paintings. He's agreed to participate in our Sketchbook series so without further ado we present a look behind the scenes at his work!

Charles Wilkin0
"My work is a loose collection of thoughts and observations in many ways and less about one specific theme. I see it as being a reflection of the world we live in, with all its ugliness and cruelty. But from that, I strive to extract the beauty and empathy hidden underneath and within us all, revealing the unknown, the unspoken and intangible things that make us truly human." -Charles Wilkin, Brooklyn, NY

Ernesto Artillo - Empty Kingdom - 2015
Working primarily in Fashion, Ernesto Artillo is an editorial collagist, as I would like to call him. He transforms high fashion into fractured, distorted portraits, using photography and collage. His work varies from obscure, minimalist collage to more dizzying and surreal landscapes (at times echoing Cubism) with the human body being cut by bold stripes of color and abstract imagery. He has worked with the biggest names in fashion from Louis Vuitton to Burberry to Maison Martin Margiela.

Eugenia Loli0
"It's important for me to "say" something with my artwork, so for the vast majority of my work there's a meaning behind them. I usually do this via presenting a "narrative" scene in my collages, like there's something bigger going on than what's merely depicted. Sometimes the scene is witty or sarcastic, some times it's horrific with a sense of danger or urgency, some times it's chill. I leave it to the viewer's imagination to fill-in the blanks of the story plot." -Eugenia Loli, collage artist, Milpitas, California.

THE LAST GASP - EMPTY KINGDOM - KICKSTARTER
Our good friends over at Last Gasp publishing who are in their 45th year of creating and distributing some of the finest books in art and alternative literature are running a Kickstarter campaign for their fall line. This campaign is near and dear to our hearts because as many of you probably know, the world of print has been going through many changes and difficulties in a digital age and for those that appreciate art you know having a finely printed book is a completely different experience than viewing online. We are doing our part to support them because there's nobody else like Last Gasp out there and we want them to keep on keepin' on. They have supported many of the artists we love and we hope you join us in supporting their campaign, they have lots of cool prizes so please check it out!

Donate to EMPTY KINGDOM

Most of our faithful fans know that we here at EK do what we do simply for the love of Art. And if you don't know, now you know. We originally started our site to share our love of Art with the world, but it grew quickly from a fun side project to an intense, all-consuming labor of love, and now, we have been blessed with this beautiful baby whose life it is our job to nurture and grow in a positive, impactful way. Our dream is to be a 90/10 company, meaning we donate 90% of our company's net income and keep only 10%. Take a moment to think about how retardedly difficult that sounds. There isn't a businessman in the world who'd invest in a business plan like that.

John Stezaker - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
London based artist John Stezaker’s work re-examines the various relationships to the photographic image: as documentation of truth, purveyor of memory, and symbol of modern culture. In his collages, Stezaker appropriates images found in books, magazines, and postcards and uses them as ‘readymades’. Through his elegant juxtapositions, Stezaker adopts the content and contexts of the original images to convey his own witty and poignant meanings.
