NOT ART0
"This is Not Art. It’s not deeply meaningful or vaguely philosophical. It’s not calculated or exact. It is only a series of posters designed from classic paintings. A simple reinterpretation of how we saw them. Our tribute to art and design." -Warsheh, Amman, Jordan

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!

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.

Tatiana Plakhova - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
"The main idea is to show a new way of “infographic” drawings. Because everything we see is biological, mathematical or geological information. It can also be cultural patterns or any other thing. Complexity Graphics works are based on mathematical simplicity and harmony. I would describe them as infographic abstracts. This mathematical style helps me to illustrate everything from biological cell to the space and meditative worlds. That’s why I admire by math, because it’s everywhere and nowhere." -Tatiana Plakhova, Moscow, Russia

Nonotak Studio - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Nonotak Studio is a collaboration between animator Noemi Schipfer and "architect musician" Takami Nakamoto. In 2011 they were commissioned by a French architect to create a public mural in Paris and the duo has been constructing dizzying audio and visual installations since. Deep, brooding, and ambient soundscapes are coupled with beautiful geometric patterns of light that sway in space as the viewer is fully immersed. Nonotak Studio have taken their pieces to festivals throughout the U.S. (i.e.; New York) and Europe (primarily). I secretly imagine myself wandering the streets of Paris late, late at night and stumbling into one of these installations, they are so tricking RAD!
