Conor Harrington Part II

Conor Harrington - Empty Kingdom - Art Blog
Conor Harrington is a street/graffiti/figurative/painter based out of Cork, Ireland. “A painter first and foremost. If you asked me that 10 years ago I would have said a graffiti writer but now as I get older I’m trying to shake off all those labels. It’s a strange position for a lot of us these days. We come from graffiti and street art but now we want to move beyond that. That's why I like the term post-graffiti a lot."

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!

El Curiot

art blog - Curiot - empty kingdom
Currently based out of Mexico City, Mexico, Curiot creates paintings and murals that seems reminiscent of a peyote induced vision...or perhaps psilocybin mushrooms...maybe ayahuasca? Regardless, give me all three thrown into a blender, and sit me in front of El Curiot's piece and I'll see you in a week.

Mark Jenkins Part Deux

by

July 24, 2013

Here at Empty Kingdom, we love nothing more than an artist with a sense of humour. Mark Jenkins, previously featured all the way back in December 2010, definitely has the comedic element in his work that we dig. See if you can spot his obscure street art next time you're wondering arounda big city...

TrustoCorp

art blog - TrustoCorp - empty kingdom
Hijacking the public visual space is the name of the game for TrustoCorp, a New York-based artist or group of artists (of course their identities would be shrouded in mystery) who dedicates their energy to "highlighting the hypocrisy and hilarity of human behavior through sarcasm and satire." Now just as a heads up, I did get a little image happy with this post mainly because I loved the diverse body of work that TrustoCorp produces, so enjoy! I know I did.

Shelley Miller

Miller_web2
Shelley Miller takes graffiti to a whole new level, taking to the streets not with spray cans of paint but an arsenal of sugar icing. She creates large, decorative murals with an almost colonial, victorian air - literally sugar-coating the crumbling urban walls from Brazil to Montreal.

Tasha Lewis

Tasha-Lewis_web3
For the past few months, Tasha Lewis has been traveling around the US installing 400 cyanotype butterflies in public spaces...guerrilla style - the only style that EK loves. Each cyanotype butterfly is printed on cotton fabric and is attached to a small, yet powerful magnet to ensure that no harm or damage is done to any surface. "I hope that these ephemeral installations will turn into public performances and events as the swarm grows even bigger. My goal is to toe the line between subversive street art and lyrical apparition."
