Crowell A Pate IV is an Alabama-born multi-disciplinary artist, with a primary focus in sculptural work. His training began at the University of Alabama Huntsville, where he earned a B.A. in studio art, continuing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, completing a B.F.A. in sculpture, and is completing his M.F.A. in sculpture at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Atlanta, GA in June 2016.

In his work we see the highlighting of thoughts, feelings, and experiences hidden in the subconscious. He does this through a process of responding to materials by allowing them to guide his direction through the piece. It is the combination of these responses and intuitive working that allows the work to decode its story, one that hides in the depths of the mind. It is through traditional methods of working, as well as applying new media technologies, which his work forms itself.

Crowell's work has exhibited internationally in exhibitions in Cortona, Italy, and Sabile, Latvia. Also, his work has gained visibility in group and solo exhibitions in Washington D.C.; Chicago, Illinois; Huntsville, AL; Athens, GA; and Atlanta, GA. His works have been presented in professional galleries, such as Kamama in Mentone, AL, and have found a place in the corporate realm on display at Winzler Gear and Plante Morane in Chicago, IL, as well as SkyHouse Midtown in Atlanta, GA
