Xavier has been artistically inclined from a young age. He was encouraged by his parents who were also practitioners of the arts. In high school Xavier became heavily influenced by graffiti and tattooing culture and utilized them to create tattoo designs for his classmates. In 2010 Xavier did a year long apprenticeship at a shop in Oak Part, Illinois, and worked there for two years. Afterward, he worked for a year in his home town of Chicago before relocating to Arizona and spending three years tattooing in Tempe. Xavier is well versed in fine art and has been classically trained here in Arizona. In 2017 he was on exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum for tattoo art.
I endeavor to create images that inspire humanity to challenge their perception of mundane reality, and see different perspectives of life. My work mirrors a ceaseless investigation into the subversion of life through everyday objects, animals, stories, myths, idioms, fables, and religion. My work is inspired by surrealism, realism, and animation. I have many goals as an artist. It is a personal desire for my art to be a direct reflection of my personal sentiments. It is my mission to stimulate the viewer’s critical thought process, and create internal intellectual queries concerning their own beliefs and ideas. My future direction is to create and innovate work that is able to stand apart from the multitudes of other artists.
