NFT DROP: Shantell Martin & Ben Sheppee will release their Third Collection “Lapidarist” | VIDEO

British artists Shantell Martin and Ben Sheppee will release their third NFT drop on June 3rd, entitled Lapidarist. A collaborative ongoing series of works, Lapidarist deconstructs and transforms solid or valid entities. The three-dimensional nature of the now abstract structures, each of which floats aimlessly in space, contributes to their ambiguity as something imagined attempts to become something real.

With a collaborative working relationship that spans 15 years, artists Martin and Sheppee have styles that both contrast and complement each other’s practice, style, and work.
