In Interviews NYAB Video by Matt Schlecht 2009-06-10 print

Artist Shantell Martin uses her background in graphic design and illustration (she graduated from Central Saint Martins in London) to explore the borders of drawing, fashion, and music. It is not surprising, then, to find out that after spending a few years in Tokyo, where she made a name for herself as a VJ doing live projector drawings, she has relocated to New York.

An emphasis on community, and responding to one’s environment is key for Martin. As she says about her work: “The lines are spontaneous and intuitive, drawing for me is a line that flows between the past and the future without touching the sides.”

Check out this video interview from Tokyo Art Beat to see Martin rocking her lines in Tokyo with the help of some volunteers and a lot of tape.
