Shantell Martin

Just came upon the artwork of Shantell Martin and want to switch bedrooms immediately.


After a feature in the NYTimes, Martin's name has been popping up left and right. Her free association installation drawings are delicate and immersive. Reducing everything to black and white, she tends to leave no surface untouched. From toy dinosaurs to discarded glass bottles, her work bridges the gap between life and art, between the ordinary and extraordinary.






She explains that the above drawing was framed in order to, "give it some space".


Don't miss her Brooklyn opening at Black and White Gallery on Friday, September 21, from 7-10 pm. The gallery has set up both an indoor and outdoor installation space for her beautiful lines, promising to be a knock out show.

  1. very aesthetic .. have a doubt, would her work fall under minimalism? or a branch of it?
