St. Paul Slim

St. Paul Slim is the emcee. The W8 On Empty Space is the painter. In the tradition of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Slim is his own artistic invention. St. Paul Slim has created a legacy of lyrical prowess through his booming voice. He speaks for the streets, he speaks for the people, and he speaks very loudly.

His journey began as a member of the hip hop duo, Guardians of Balance, and through the years has found himself featured on albums alongside the likes of Atmosphere, Prof, Lizzo & Yelawolf & sharing stages with artist such as KRS-1, MC Lyte, Cee-Lo & Wiz Khalifa. While his commitment to music hasn’t waivered, his visual artistic talents have evolved from private notebooks at home into #TheW8OnEmptySpace.

In the past two years Slim has painted table tops for Libertine restaurant in Uptown, had three successful solo art shows, he has been featured as an artist for the Made Here series #Represent, and he is one of only ten artists featured on the 2016 Summer Arts Discovery Series at the Landmark Center in St. Paul, Minnesota.
