Lines, Colors and Words that Make a Bold Statement
Renowned artist Shantell Martin has created a language of lines. At once whimsical and profound, her thought-provoking and memorable world of characters and messages bridges the gap between fine art, performance art, and everyday life. Born in London and currently based in New York, Martin’s art is inspired by her travels and the people she meets. Her lines and words depict the daily stories of ordinary people and things, and somehow she interprets them in an extraordinary way.
Following her debut collection with PUMA in Spring ‘18 that predominantly featured a monotone palette with hints of blue, her second collection bears her signature illustrations and lettering incorporated in a vibrant mix of colors for a ‘90s rave-inspired feel.
Premium materials, pops of color, and intricate details stand out in this collection for the unique, the bold, and the playful. Collection pieces are adorned with catch phrases coined by Martin like “Find Your Way” and “One, Two, Free” weaved in between hand drawned intricate lines and shapes. PUMA’s classic styles and new silhouettes stand out like works of art.
The PUMA x Shantell Autumn Collection launches on puma.com and selected sneaker boutiques and lifestyle retailer worldwide. See product information below.
