Xavier Sanchez a.k.a Xave is a multidisciplinary artist. Born in Venezuela and raised in a French family. Xave is a Graphic Designer, an Illustrator, Motioner, Creative, Cooker, KID with some skills. After a while, the space between Graphics and Illustration faded away and became a mixture of art, design, motion, and people (not always in that exact order). “My everyday life consists of finding my own ways to do what you can see here, there and also there (not always up to date)”.
“After a few years working in advertising and graphic media – for several agencies and diverse clients -, my unstoppable mind took me to the other side of the world. In finding myself I wished to discover the core of all those different cultures – to blend into a new professional and artist.”
What’s Art Collective is the first initiative in Spain that explores the conflicts of the “creative soul”. It urges artists to create a cultural debate and educate society through workshops, talks and other practices. What’s Art Collective’s mission is to take artists out of their comfort zone to identify problems that can be solved through creativity.
