PRESS RELEASE | ST AUSTELL, 22 JUNE 2022 — Celebrated Japanese artist SaiakuNana, who has exhibited her work in Tokyo, London and New York, has joined forces with award-winning Cornish animator and filmmaker Ignatius Rake to produce a music video that documents her must-see gallery in London’s East End before it closes this coming July 17.
“I became a fan of SaiakuNana’s work the moment I saw it at the Watari-um gallery in Tokyo,” Rake says.
“I was immediately struck by the power and vibrancy of her paintings, which combine the kawaii aesthetic of modern Japanese popular culture with the raw energy of punk rock and abstract expressionism.”
In 2018, SaiakuNana won the Grand Prize at the 21st Taro Okamoto Award for Contemporary Art, the Japanese equivalent of the UK’s Turner Prize.

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.
EXHIBITION – From May 7 to June 4 Subliminal Projects is pleased to present THE FUTURE, a site-specific installation, and a series of new works by multidisciplinary artist Shantell Martin
Known for her signature black and white drawings, Martin’s work investigates themes of intersectionality, identity, and play. Through her continual exploration of the spontaneous hand-drawn line, Martin facilitates new connections between fine art, design, education, philosophy, technology, and the reciprocal relationship between artist and viewer, in which a work of art is more than an object of admiration.
