Martina Martian is an Australian artist and designer, known for colourful illustrations and graphics. Her signature vibrant style has caught the attention of local and international brands alike, resulting in collaborations with Reebok, Nike, IKEA, ASOS and more!
As supporters of local creatives, Butter spoke to Martina to discuss her favourite collaborations and what it's like being a young artist in 2017.
What do you stand for as an artist?
I'm a feminist who believes in positivity and empowerment - this comes into everything I do, including art and design.
Your work is vibrant and colourful. Is there something that attracts you to it?
Bright colours encompass everything that I want to be as a person: bright, bold, fun and positive.
You've worked with a range of sneaker and lifestyle brands. Do you have any favourites?
My favourite collaboration so far has been with Reebok - they truly let me have creative freedom and took the time to understand me and my work. We worked together from the very start of the project and I created some illustrations I'm very proud of as a result.
So stoked to finally show you guys my latest collaboration with Reebok! Such a dream come true 👟👟👟 I created a couple of artworks (will post the rest soon) inspired by their new Classic Leather Bandana pack- but with my own colourful spin on things as usual. #reebok #thisISclassic #reebokclassic @reebokclassicsau
