Drawing My Dreams

Do you recall you dream? In this series Martin tries to capture her dream in the form of words and lines.

Drawing with code

A series of drawing experiments using code to create lines and forms.

Live digital performance

Live drawn performance to DJ's, Dancers and Musicians, both high and low tech.


The work of Shantell Martin is a meditation of lines; a language of characters, creatures and messages that invite her viewers to share a role in her creative process. Part autobiographical, and part dreamlike whimsy, Martin has created her own world that bridges fine art, commercial and the everyday experience — conversations, objects and places.

Martin recently is a visiting scholar at MIT Media Lab and is also an adjunct professor at ITP, NYU. She deeply enjoys her volunteer work with schools and organizations like Apple Arts and Manhattan Apparel Project where she teaches kids to draw using their imaginations. She moved her studio to Tribeca in the spring of 2013.
