EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2013

by

January 31, 2014

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!

art blog - Léo Caillard - empty kingdom
Based out of Paris, France, Léo Caillard is a photographer who was worked for many editorial publications, such as Amusement Magazine, Wad, Archive, Wired Magazine, Emerce, Beaux Arts, SVM Mac, and Fahrenheit among many others. Caillard's new series, "Hipsters in Stone", is a very simple concept: dress classical statues with hipster wardrobe. It seems that our preoccupation (and even obsession) as humans with physical appearance and beauty hasn't really changed over the centuries.

A reporter from LIFE Magazine once asked Marilyn Monroe the question, "What do you wear to bed?". Monroe responded, "Just a few drops of N°5". This reply was arguably what made Chanel what it is today. With this, they dug deeper into this never published world-famous response by teasing us with her new film entitled "Marilyn and N°5."
