Every time a person is affected by art, the impact is universal. Each time an artist conjures up a vision and casts it into existence as a painting, installation or glass sculpture, they steer the collective whole of humanity towards something new.
‘Through my work I aim to shatter the ‘illusion of separation’, to challenge the viewer to question, and evolve out of ignorance, conditioning and ingrained genetic habits.
In life I strive to take responsibility for the effect of my existence, and through my actions and images, inspire others to think/dream beyond their immediate capacity. Ultimately I seek to create portals that open to the infinite possibilities of being and expressing, so that we may remember and re-discover who we are, where we originate from and where we are headed.
My aspiration is to paint messages, visions and narratives that communicate with an ‘older & wiser us’, awakening ancient memory; as well as the ‘present us’, that we may grow up and accept the responsibilities towards ourselves, each other and the rest of existence on this planet… now :)’

I don’t know you,
but I am a dreamer and a vagabond too…
Traveling on electric highways.
And the house you built of fragile stuff,
is the same as mine.
It may be never, it may be soon
But I hope that some afternoon
I’ll hear a step on the creaking stair,
I’ll open the door and you’ll be there,
I have been deeply inspired by the creative offerings of others, through music, painting, dance, as well as by the art that surrounds us all the time in the form of forests, beaches, mountains, and rivers. Through the inspiration gathered from all these sources, I myself have developed the means to channel the current into art in the form of paintings and sculptural installation.
The intention embedded within these works is to assist in the catalyzation of one’s core connection with the source, that which connects us all, to heal the schism between ourselves as humans and the world around us. Our strongest resource is inspiration, and through this means we have the power and ability to steer our society towards the path of love, beauty, and peaceful harmony which will ensure our survival on this wonderful planet we are so blessed to live upon.
Xavi is an internationally recognized mural Artist and Designer widely known for his contributions to global visionary art and festival culture.
Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s as a skateboarder in the Washington, D.C. metro area, I was exposed to Graffiti Art at a young age. I quickly became obsessed with this almost alien force of art. The dopeness of Graffiti was an intoxicating feeling beyond anything for which I had words. Dynamic letters, colors, shapes and characters came alive in my imagination, hypnotically pulling me toward some future destiny. I knew that this was my calling in life. In order to feed my obsession, and being that I was so young, my parents bought me an airbrush and I began painting murals. Soon, I was painting murals in kids’ bedrooms, at my high school and in local businesses. I started airbrushing graffiti t-shirts, jeans, backpacks and whatever anyone wanted me to paint. Ever since then, I have worked full time making art and building a career … one creation at a time. Since the 90’s, the rave scene and West Coast festival culture have given me a space to share and grow culture & community. Everyday I feel humbled that I am able to participate in making art with the intention of bringing light and making the world a sweeter place.

All of my work is rooted in geometry and I have been devoted to this for most of the 36 years of this life. What I’m expressing is a visually poetic response to a geometrical language that underpins and connects all. The language of the universe, light, god and goddess….the language of creation….the place we come from….the place we return to…
Tattooing is a newer medium in my artistic timeline. I came to it because I wanted more connection with the people who support my work. Through practicing this ancient sacred art, my creative practice has expanded into a healing practice, which is inseparable from all spiritual practice. I see each tattoo as a Talisman charged with the particular energy that comes through the weaving of my creative intuition with the client’s intent. I hope all of these expressed works connect with the ones who wear them in a way that uplifts and inspires.
