Eyesores Solo Exhibition

The world of Eyesores emerges from the monsterful imagination of Barcelona artist, Xavier Gallego.

Born in a small town outside of Barcelona, Xavier spent his school years entertaining himself by creating an illustrated universe of monsters in his notebook. He never thought his hobby could become his livelihood until his best friend’s mother suggested studying graphic design. Within a few years after graduating Barcelona’s top design school, IDEP, Xavier had worked as Multimedia Director at one of Barcelona’s most innovate advertising agencies as well as chief designer for multiple start-ups. After working in New York for  R/GA as a creative director on experience design, creating award winning experiences for nike and samsung ( Nike Film room, Nike the Black Mamba, Nike SB app, The redesign of nike.com and the Samsung “Jay-Z Magna Carta” app. ) he recently moved to San Francisco.

For loved ones and even new acquaintances, Xavier was known to always create a personalized canvas for a birthday gift, or to paint a wall with Eyesores monsters to transform a new apartment into a home. He created these unique works of art to communicate a thoughtful message and put a smile on someone’s face. While searching for an idea for the Facebook app, he realized that it could provide a unique opportunity to use social media to share his artwork and facilitate communication between people through his creations.
