Autobiographical and dreamlike, Martin bridges the fine art and commercial world, as well as the objects, places and conversations of the everyday experience.

From early beginnings with live performance drawing in the mega clubs of Tokyo, to her trademark continuous line, Martin's diverse work navigates many worlds.

COME WHAT MAY

A four-part mini series, where Martin offers an intimate portrait of her world.

London, Tokyo, New York
2019

So you want to become an artist? That’s a question Shantell Martin has faced her entire life. In this four-part series, Martin offers an intimate portrait of her world, revealing how a queer, mixed-race girl from a South East London council estate evolved into one of the most exciting, global artists of our time. 

Through a blend of original artwork, rarely seen archival footage, and in-depth interviews, each episode explores a formative stop in her globe-spanning journey: from an artist reckoning with tough childhood to a visual jockey in Tokyo’s night clubs to an acclaimed New York artist.

 

Come What May is directed and edited by Andrew Fuchs.
