Sandow Birk is an artist from Los Angeles, California, USA.

Last month in March, EMPTY KINGDOM took a short trip down to San Jose, California, and saw Birk’s work inside the walls of the San Jose Museum of Art.

Birk’s paintings are quite breathtaking…in both scale and imagery. His “Divine Comedy” series was a five-year project in which he adapted the entire text of Dante’s work into the setting of contemporary urban America.
