EK Podcast: Lucien Shapiro

Lucien Shapiro is a dear dear friend of Empty Kingdom, one of the oldest and coolest. He is a badass sculptor and a very original, thoughtful human. In this episode we dive deep into his career. We interviewed him in the lobby of the Kabuki Hotel in SF. He is doing a nationwide tour of a fear collecting ritual that is explained in the podcast. I highly suggest checking it out, I missed the first one in SF but I’ll be sure to be at the next one, because well I got some things to get off my back. I bet you do too.

A collaboration with Shuan Roberts, you can buy his prints here: www.afoolsjourney.bigcartel.com
