We’ve written about Shantell Martin a number of times over the past year, yet we remain inspired by both her art as well as her unique form of storytelling. In the below video, Shantell explains how her style evolved from doing street art and tags in London to doing much smaller and more intense drawings in Tokyo and how that ultimately influenced her current work utilizing projectors and wacomb tablets.
Explaining how her recent trip to New York helped develop her style, she describes how drawing in front of live crowds and interacting with the environment puts the audience in control and enables her to tell unique stories about them.
