About Xavier

Monsters are the great obsession of Oakland based, Spanish artist Xavier, also know as @eyesores. These monsters are not horrible and menacing, on contrary they are cuddly and lovely. Monsters who throw messages of love, optimism and even are able to make your day happy with their sweet ugliness. They are soft and have beautiful colors as pink, green apple or clear blue.

Through this very personal iconography, we can see how cheerful and carefree his personality is and how his way of looking at life is always positive. He spreads romantic love messages and rules for happiness masterfully, using humor and a fun graphic line.

His art has been shown in solo art exhibitions in Los Angeles, New York and Istanbul and brands like Airbnb, Spotify and Mahou, have commissioned him to paint murals, illustrate campaigns or even create the identity of a new beer.
