Since its inception in 2001, Cristina Grajales Gallery has established itself as one of the forerunners in the design world. The gallery specializes in contemporary design, while also dealing in masterpieces of the twentieth century.Cristina Grajales Gallery focuses on cultivating the work of emerging contemporary designers. The artists represented by Cristina Grajales Gallery work in a variety of areas within the larger field of design: furniture and lighting, as well as ceramic, metal and textile design. Their work constantly pushes, blurs and in some cases erases the line between art and design.
A signature of Steven and Williams's work is their hand sewn boxes containing meticulously constructed environments, often composed of found materials that the brothers have sewn, beaded, and scrolled. When closed and stacked, the boxes become sculptural towers, majestic works of art, at rest until dismantled and contents revealed in a rhythmic and choreographed performance during which the brothers open the boxes and arrange them in their landscape formations.
