Shantell Martin is a visual artist best known for her large scale, black-and-white drawings and collaborations with artists and institutions, including Kendrick Lamar, the New York City Ballet, Tiffany & Co., Puma, the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, The Museum of the Moving Image and MoMA. Her current retrospective, NEW/NOW, is on exhibit at The New Britain Museum of Art through April 18, 2021. Shantell is passionate about advocating for Artist’s Rights and championing the work of other artists, while also exploring how art, design and product can work with one another to create accessible everyday experiences. These passions are the foundation and the inspiration behind her new collection, Line by Shantell Martin with The Whitney Shop. Her first art book is currently available in collaboration with HENI publishing, LINES, with text by Katharine Stout and an interview by Hans Ulrich Obrist. Shantell lives in Jersey City with her partner and their dog, Blanche. She’s currently spending her days filming her new YouTube series, Provenance, which brings audiences directly into her studio/archive, going into detail about her artistic process and the inspiration behind prior projects.
