ARTISTS BIO:

Kenneth Crain’s childhood interest in art and antiquity has matured into a passion for
artistic mediums which knows few bounds, constantly moving between the realms
offline art, street art, furniture, architectural, technology, and lighting. Mr. Crain is well
known for pushing the envelope of customary design, often by combining multiple
disciplines or simply choosing a larger-than-life scale to create truly unique pieces that
are as beautiful as they are exciting. Kenneth Crain was named as one of 2014’s “Best
of The City” by Dallas Modern Luxury magazine for his bold designs. Kenneth Crain
currently lives and works out of his studio in the Design District of Dallas, Texas.

Stanley Ray Abbott, a Dallas born artist, is a self-taught creative. His work and mediums
are constantly evolving as tools and technology expand the boundaries of what is
possible. Stanley subscribes to the belief that any object or idea has the potential to be
art if presented in the proper context. Stanley’s love affair with art began at a very early
age. His first commissioned works were at age 12. In the 35 years since, his body of
work has grown to comprise hundreds of commissioned paintings and mixed media
works, over 1000 pieces of custom furnishings, hundreds of sculptures and several
large scale installation artworks in private collections. Stanley recently completed a
mixed media installation in the lobby of the Lonestar Gas Lofts. He is currently
designing a modern art-centric 240 room boutique hotel in downtown Dallas
