Shantell Martin

Difficult Artist

The visual artist Shantell Martin has an unusual creative process: she draws live. As in, she walks up to a blank canvas, and, in front of an audience, waits for inspiration to strike. The results are mesmerizingly detailed, joyful, playful black and white line drawings that are also strangely soothing to look at and to watch the artist make. Shantell talks to Lizzy about growing up an outsider, finding herself at Central St. Martins art college in London, and learning that leaving where you’re from is sometimes the best way of finding out where you really feel at home.  Learn more about your ad choices.
