    Shake - Brilliant dutch graffiti artist

    Jill Martens, also known as `Shake`, is a brilliant Dutch graffiti artist from The Hague. Although his career started being a graffiti virtuoso, painting anything from walls to trains, from cars to furniture. Jill developed himself into a more all-round graphics designer and he has taken graffiti-art onto the next level. Taking the street style art form from walls to canvas, his paintings have now been auctioned at Sotheby`s and have been exposed from Antwerp to Barcelona.
    He was even asked to beautify a fifty meter long wall, inside the (in)famous Scheveningen correctional facility (prison), and he painted the whole training facility for the Dutch Olympic beach volleyball team, for which sand was brought in from Beijing, China.

    Although Jill spends a lot more time these days designing computer-rendered graphics and lay-outs, and painting his art inside his home, he will always feel the shivers down his spine, when looking at a big empty wall…Never being able to part from his roots, he will always have a passion for illegal street style graffiti writing. With spray-paint running through his veins, Jill Martens even bleeds art…
