This year for SXSW Empty Kingdom partnered with the awesome HOPE Campaign to deliver an amazing all day art event in Austin Texas.  Empty Kingdom was most honored to bring Dave Young, Derek Gores, Hugh Leeman, and Joel Daniel Phillips down to Austin to participate and put their various talents to work to make this wall shine.  If you didn't manage to get down there, don't fret y'all!  We've got photos!  And maybe we'll see you next time, in your city... On behalf of all of us at Empty Kingdom, we are incredibly thankful to both the artists as well as everyone who supported this effort, whether financially or by promoting the event via the various methods of social media and by word of mouth.

The fourth and final artists that Empty Kingdom is proud to bring to SXSW ReCREATE:ATX will be Derek Gores.  The fantastic master of the collage will undoubtedly be putting something stunning and novel up on the walls in Austin Texas.  Derek understands that this is about community, encouraging anyone near the event to bring something for him to include, a bold offer from a man who knows what art is truly about.

We covered Derek Gores' dope collage art in this post, and also featured him in our 2010's Top 100. We recently got in touch and he told us about an upcoming show he has in LA. Never ones to miss an opportunity, we offered to give him a plug in exchange for an interview. Some of his answers were really insightful and should be highly relevant to aspiring artists of all stripes. Always awesome to see the artists we dig getting success. Hit the jump to read on, as well as a video sneak peep of him at work

(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."
