Shantell Martin is proud to announce the launch of her first art book, Lines, which charts her career. Lines includes 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. The book also features an essay by Katharine Stout, the Deputy Director of the Institute of Contemporary Arts in London, and an interview with Hans Ulrich Obrist, Artistic Director of the Serpentine Galleries in London.
A Special Edition is available in a limited run of 200 copies, each containing hand drawn original art by Shantell Martin on the front and back cover so that each is unique and transcends the limitations of standardized publication and becomes in and of itself; a piece of art. Along with being an extension of Shantell Martin’s philosophy and purpose to bridge the gap of accessibility between collectors and art; using an everyday item, such as a book.
