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 - Jean-Paul Frenay - Empty Kingdom

With such a busy schedule, we here at EK were more than appreciative to have him take the time and divulge us about the mindset behind his varying projects, and what continues to artistically drive him forward to this day.

EMPTY KINGDOM TOP 100 Artists of 2010

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."

Touch “Your” World

art blog - enmpty kingdom - Pranav Mistry
Since the new trend of touch screen devices I wanted to shed some light for some people that are still doubters of what is to come(including me). That's right people I have chosen a side and I finally made up my mind on the "am I in -or- am I out" debate. With full force
