art blog - Adam Tan - Empty Kingdom
If somber and slightly morose illustrations ever give me a warm and fuzzy feeling, they are likely done by Adam Tan. He uses a spectrum of ambient colors and shades to give a stillness that either complements or offset his varied pieces. This fellow Adventure Time enthusiast and talented mixed media illustrator resides in Auckland, New Zealand.

art blog- Markus Manowski - empty kingdom
Markus Manowski is a multifaceted artist from Zabrze, Poland. His work is a somber juxtaposition of abstract shadows and colors with pictorial elements of found photographs and images from his own archive of pictures and drawings. This combination allows for a progression from one piece to the next, creating dialogue between the artist and his medium; The transition mirrors a radical shift in the social environment in his past, documenting a journey from a communist regime to West Germany. Also known as Daze Maxim, Manowski is not only well versed in visual mediums but is also a well established musical artist with a substantial body of work as a musician, producer and performer in the field of electronic music.

Henrik Uldalen, a talented painter previously featured on April 2012, achieves an eerie serenity in his work that is downright admirable. The melancholy combination of colors and empty space with its peaceful subjects is what I imagine white noise on canvas would look like.

art blog - Sébastien Layral - empty kingdom
"To give the opportunity to access different points of view through the encounter, this process allows to put into perspective the place of each person, and understand the need for plurality of views. Each person will work on making him or herselves available and allow a path of full access to others. The action can also be stated differently, nourished by the encounter (change of perspective). And beyond this story, allow to modify the first thought: initiatory path to change the world." -Sébastien Layral is an artist currently based out of Châtel-Guyon, Auvergne, France who produces figurative and nude oil on canvas paintings.
