The work of SHANTELL MARTIN is a meditation of black and white lines ; a language of characters, creatures and messages that invite her viewers to share a role in her creative process. Her recent work includes a solo show at the MoCADA Museum, a one-of-a-kind collection with interior designer Kelly Wearstler and a large scale mural inside Pulitzer Hall, home of the new Brown institute for media innovation.
MICHAEL ARTHUR is a Brooklyn-based artist who specializes in both drawing the intimate moments of theater, dance and music as well as performing “live drawings”, visually accompanying music and performers with projected, real time illustrations. He draws mostly in ink without any pencils or rough drafts : each drawing is a live reaction to the moment. Michael’s drawings have appeared at Vanity Fair, The New York Times, The New Yorker, Departures Magazine, NPR, The Huffington Post and many other places. He was the archival artist for Joe’s Pub in New York and the Rehearsal Artist for La Jolla Playhouse in San Diego. He is also a member of the indie band Balthrop, Alabama where he draws live during performances.
