Shantell Martin

Shantell Martin draws on everything. She draws on cars. She draws on shoes and clothing. She draws on walls and buildings. She draws in black marker on a white surface, and usually on a grand scale. She also collaborates with musicians like Kendrick Lamar, with technologists and designers, and with dancers. In late 2018, for the New York City Ballet, she created large-scale drawings in the performance hall and foyer at Lincoln Center.

Debbie talks with Shantell about her unorthodox career, her collaborations, and about the business of making art. “We put artists through art school, and then we spit them out, and then they are taken advantage of.”
