In the busy world of art, Shantell Martin has carved herself a unique place.

From wall-spanning pen work to sunglasses and colouring books, British visual artist Shantell Martin creates her own black and white world on everything she draws on.

Exploring the themes of communication between artist and audience, Shantell's work is a quest for identity built upon a meditation of lines that bridge fine art, performance art and technology with the everyday experience of conversation, objects and places.

Originally a student of Central St. Martin's University, Shantell brings her audience and surroundings into her drawings as a reflection on ever changing time and space.
