In the early eighties, Rusty Arena returned to Houston from New York to continue pursuing abstract painting in his hometown. The success that he gained from his artwork led him to open up Arena Design in ‘88. The hope was for his talents to be accessed by more individuals who sought enduring refinement through interior surroundings. Arena began drawing full scale patterns to then be translated into silk-screens. Arena’s passion is a devotion to technique and the principle that each product created is intrinsically unique.
