art blog - Andrew Archer - empty kingdom
The marvelous artist from New Zealand is back with his timeless style and chromatic brilliance. Illustrator and crayon enthusiast, Andrew Archer first appeared on EK on January 2010. The latest in his surrealistic repertoire explodes with aberrant wonder, inspired by cartoons and Edo period art among other mediums that portray sublime narratives.

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

TOP 100 2013
[Photo by: Shelbie Dimond] 939 is the magic number for EK in 2013. 939 only has 4 factors: 1, 3, 313, 939...which doesn't really have any significant meaning relating to our TOP 100. AMD made a CPU called the Socket 939 back in June 2004...but we're not sponsored by them nor any other computer tech company to supply us with the machines that we need to run EK. The year 939 in Roman numerals is CMXXXIX...which doesn't mean crap since none of us use Roman numerals anymore. According to HistoryOrb.com, 4 major events took place in year 939 that were documented: July 8th (The Major Occultation, or Ghaybat el-Kubra of Muhammad al-Mahdi), August 6th (Battle at Simancas - Spain beats Moors), October 2nd (Battle at Andernach: King Otto & Hermann of Zwaben beat Eberhard of France & Giselbert of Lutherans), October 27th (Edmund I succeeds Athelstan as King of England)...which all has nothing to do with EK. Nonetheless, 939 is the exact number of posts we had to sift through for 2013 in order to bring to all of you art-fiends our fourth annual EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013!

1_e_Pablo-Larraín-_NO
Director Pablo Larraín (creator of Tony Manero, Post Mortem) dives into the historical events of Chile in 1988, a time when advertising aided in the upheaval of an unjust dictatorship. Simply and powerfully entitled NO.

Moxy Creative: Sweet and Simple

by

art blog - Moxy Creative House - Empty Kingdom
Superbly creative and down to the bare minimum are the works from Moxy Creative House. They were featured back in November 2010 and are still killing it with simplistic designs. Amazing how even the most basic of symbols, can unite us as a collective through nothing more but pop culture references. Plus their taste in movies, not too shabby.

art blog - Bicicleta Sem Frio - empty kingdom
The chaotic, intricate and raunchy awesomesauce that is Bicicleta Sem Frieo is back after their epic EK Interview! This illustration studio collective from Brazil was first featured in 2010. Just as I figured, their psychedelic product definitely hasn’t lost its touch; sexy ladies and rock n’ roll combined with sheer artistic brilliance never go out of style.

Mr. Ian Wright creates pixel-based artwork using all kinds of different materials. Ian is motivated by trying to push his work somewhere new. He prefers to let the materials used to influence the outcome of his artwork. I believe he is from the UK. But what do I know, I'm not a journalist, and I'm just a bunny.

Anthony-Neil-Dart_web11
Anthony Neil Dart is a graphic designer, motion designer, photographer, and director all in one...kind of like a Swiss Army Knife, only that he's not Swedish nor is he a knife. I'm thinking more of a human multi-art tool of sorts. Apologies if the page takes a little slower to load than the others...it's because we loaded a crap load of Dart's dope work in this feature! A crap load!

art blog - EKTOP2010 - empty kingdom
(Photo by: berserker / Steve Skafte ) Within the hallowed halls of Empty Kingdom, our contributors tend to be very proud about the art that we curate. I wouldn't say it's a competition to put up the best artists, but when someone finds a really good artist first, we usually compliment each other with "Dammit!!!" or "Bastard who stole my post."
