Full Name
Xavier Leopold
Job Title
Multidisciplinary Artist, Author, Illustrator
Xavier Laurent Leopold (b.1992, Sierra Leone) is a multi-disciplinary artist and author, living and working in London, UK. The artist explores abstract portraiture and cubism through concepts such as time, introspection, faith, relationships, and legacy. Leopold depicts bold characters focusing back on the audience – an arresting way to convey direct emotions from the artist to the viewer.
Discovering his artistry during the challenging times of the pandemic in 2020 and while working as a full-time City Trader, Leopold has rapidly ascended in the art scene. His artistic endeavors have led him to showcase his work at two solo exhibitions (one supported by Beats by Dre) in London and various group exhibitions across Europe and North America.

Notably, he has exhibited alongside the iconic Jean-Michel Basquiat in New York, the hometown of the legendary artist, to whom he shares similar cultural ties, both being of Creole descent (Xavier's maternal side being from Martinique, French Caribbean). His work often softly glows in the dark, reflecting on life lessons inherited from his mother during challenging times- “a star shines the brightest in the dark”. When the world was forced to slow down, yet social and political unrest raged, his art has been a source of personal therapy for him and escapism for his audiences. He has featured on BBC TV, discussing his practice and the launch of his fill in journal and activity book 'Art For The Heart', which focuses on wellbeing and mental health for children.
