Inhibition, Identity + Play: Shantell Martin

Below the surface of Shantell Martin's signature black and white drawings is an artists' inquiry into the role of artist and viewer, where a work of art is more than an object of admiration disconnected from its inception.


With a meditative process defined by an uninhibited flow, her compositions embody her internal state and the impermanence of the world around her. Exploring themes such as intersectionality, identity and play, Martin is a cultural facilitator, forging new connections between fine art, education, design, philosophy and technology.



Martin’s work is an exploration of her own identity as a queer woman artist of color, and has often affirmed the viewer’s identity, with written messages like “You are you.” She brings together fine art, performance art, and technology in a truly unique fusion, and has adorned walls, sneakers, cars and even circuit boards with her whimsical visions.
