Born in Santurce, Puerto Rico, Xavier Brignoni has been a custom framer, an Educator, a decorator, and since 2008, a conceptual artist.
He moved to Southwest Florida in 2000, following an opportunity to reshape and redirect his professional career. Alongside lifetime friend and visual artist David Acevedo, he co-founded DAAS Gallery in downtown Fort Myers, FL. In 2012, he co-founded the Union Artists Studios in the Alliance for the Arts campus. To this day, this is the only organized group studio space in all of SWFL. As part of the first DAAS Gallery, Brignoni collaborated to establish the Fort Myers Art Walk. More recently, the artist helped establish DAAS CO-OP Art Gallery & Gifts in 2016 and expand the Union Artist Studios in 2021.
In 2017, Brignoni was recognized with a FACE Award for diversity and inclusion in the community. He has exhibited in multiple galleries in southwest Florida, and his work is part of numerous private art collections.
As a conceptualist with a powerful influence on pop art, Brignoni’s work is bold and relatable. He touches on his own life and experiences to express his emotions in a variety of mediums. His favorite technique is the fine-art decoupage. Some of his latest and most renowned works belong to his “Balancing Act” (2018) and “It Is What It Is” (2019) Collections.
With a brand new studio space and a new website, Brignoni is promising more impact and relevant artistic works, constantly evolving and pushing the boundaries.
After his two previous shows, "The Balancing Act" and "It's What It Is," Xavier Brignoni returns in 2022 with "Xperience."
Through his mixed media and conceptual art, "Xperience" takes us on a journey through five decades of the artist's life. From the beginning as a child, growing to adulthood, and on to the present, "Xperience" addresses our collective longing for answers, explanations, and reasons.

What are we searching for?
Why are we still searching at all?
