is an artist who grew up in Washington DC. At the age of 12 he became
interested in graffiti art and this interest would act as the basis
for all of his future work. He grew up as a teenager in the 90s and
was heavily influenced by the rave culture, particularly the computer
graphics that were on display in raves, as well as the visual design
of rave flyers.
1996 Xavi moved to Arizona, where he became interested in integrating the living patterns and natural shapes of the Arizona landscape into his
art. Xavi at this point also took an interest in the art of native
cultures, such as the Native Americans, Australian Aborigines and the
Huichol Indians of Mexico.
the last decade or so, Xavi has been an active member of the global
Visionary Art movement, bringing his paintings, live murals and art
installations to festivals and venues around the world. He currently
lives in California.
