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 allround graphics designer, and he has taken graffiti art onto the next level. Taking the streetstyle artform from walls to canvas, his paintings have now been auctioned at Sotheby's, and have been exposed from Antwerpen to Barcelona. He was even asked to beautify a 50meter long wall, inside the (in)famous Scheveningen correctional facility(prison),and he painted the whole training facility for the Dutch olympic beachvolleyball team, for wich sand was brought in from Beijing, China.

Allthough Jill spends a lot more time these days, designing computer-rendered graphics and lay-outs, and painting his art inside his home, he will aways feel the shivers down his spine, from looking at a big empty wall...
Never being able to part from his roots, illegal streetstyle graffitiwriting. With spraypaint running trough his veins, Jill Martens even bleeds art...
