Shantell Martin, Visual Artist

/// Shantell Martin, Visual Artist

October 31, 2013  |  TMA13

The work of Shantell Martin is a meditation of black and white lines; a language of characters, creatures and messages that invite her viewers to share a role in her creative process. Her work has appeared at the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto and she has created live digital drawings at the Brooklyn Museum, the Museum of the Moving Image and Moma. Her first solo gallery exhibition in the Fall of 2012 sold out — with her work featured on the Jimmy Kimmel show. Her commissions at Asia’s ultra-high end department store Lane Crawford, Y&R’s global headquarters and a custom installation for Miami Art Week’s Pulse in 2012 met with the same fanfare as her hand-illustrated bedroom walls graced the cover of the New York Times home section in May 2012. Her work has appeared in Creative Review Magazine, and she is still honored to have been named French Glamour’s New York’s “coolest it girl” in 2011. Martin has collaborated with prominent commercial brands, as well as with bespoke luxury partners like 3×1 denim, Citizen, and Aruliden. Martin is an adjunct professor at NYU and she recently moved her studio to Tribeca in the Spring of 2013.
