The world’s #1 card game UNO is collaborating with multi-talented visual artist Shantell Martin, the creative behind the vision “WHO ARE YOU,” to introduce the sixth deck in their premium Artiste Series.
Adding a playful twist to the UNO gameplay and drawing inspiration from Martin’s signature line-drawing style, UNO Artiste Series: Shantell Martin is thoughtfully adorned with evolving and fluid black lines taking on the shape of faces, stick figures, sailboats, and more.
“The UNO Artiste Series offers an incredible opportunity to infuse my art into one of the most iconic card games in the world. I’m honored to be part of the series and share my playful take on UNO, joining an impressive group of artists with Shepard Fairey, Takashi Murakami, Nina Chanel Abney, and more. My art is just like my life – never following a straight line – and I hope fans find comfort in the twists and turns along the way.”
Martin’s deck inserts fun meanings and hidden messages into certain UNO cards, such as the 8-card which plays off the rhyme, “don’t be late.” The set also includes four double-sided “Extra Cards” that, once combined, create two images of Martin’s original designs in both black and white.
Perfect for family game night, coffee table décor or gift to the art-lover in your life, UNO Artiste Series: Shantell Martin is available at MattelCreations.com starting August 25th at 9am PT for SRP $25.
