Local artist, Xavi Art launches his inaugural exhibition during Black History Month.
Xavier Laurent Leopold, known artistically as Xavi Art, is a self-taught contemporary artist, exploring abstract portraiture, cubism and illustrative styles.
A multi-asset finance trader by profession, the lockdown period during this coronavirus pandemic, birthed his artistic passion.
Xavi’s pieces draw inspiration from his lived experiences, relationships, ideology and world view. During a time where the world has been forced to slow down, yet social and political unrest rage, Xavi’s art has been a form of expression and escapism for him and his audiences.
Visitors are encouraged to make donations to Black Minds Matter, a charity that connects Black individuals and families with free mental health services — by professional Black therapists, specifically for black trauma.
