As an artist, I like to ask questions. I also like to expose the process as I do that. So the work is about questioning. It's about expanding this narrative about creativity and freedom.
The art of Shantell Martin has, for more than a decade, captivated audiences around the world with its intuitive energy, skill and bravura.
This monograph, available to purchase at the DAM's Shop or online, charts the career of this prolific and popular artist, including early pieces such as “Dear Grandmother” (a 2003 collaboration between the artist and her grandmother on over 70 pieces of embroidery), large-scale murals and commissions and collaborations with museums, technical institutes, musicians and fashion brands.
