Shantell Martin: Lines
Text by Katharine Stout. Interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist.  

The art of Shantell Martin has, for more than a decade, captivated audiences around the world with its intuitive energy, skill and bravura. Using a highly personalized language of characters, faces, creatures and messages and often rendering her large-scale black and white drawings live in front of an audience, Martin invites viewers to actively engage in her creative process. Using drawing as a physical stream-of-consciousness, her work is characterized by a unique freedom, expressed through the possibilities of her chosen canvas—whether that be a piece of paper or a textile, a sculptural surface, a wall or a screen.

Bridging the fine art and commercial worlds since her beginnings making live performance drawings in the mega clubs of Tokyo, Martin navigates different creative worlds to interrogate and play with the roles of artist and viewer in a uniquely charming, accessible style.

This monograph charts, for the first time, the career of this prolific and popular artist, including early pieces such as “Dear Grandmother” (a 2003 collaboration between the artist and her grandmother on over 70 pieces of embroidery), large-scale murals and commissions and collaborations with museums, technical institutes, musicians and fashion brands.
