Background

Guleus E'Xavier aka Infamous JeanClaude resides in Lexington, KY after spending the past several years working as an artist in Charlotte, NC. He received  his BFA from SCAD in 2008. He finds himself working daily on illustrations, paintings, and graphic design. As one of thirteen children, he learned at a young age to use his art as personal refuge and has been dedicated to his continuous evolution as an artist for as long as he can remember. Edwards’ fine art has shown work throughout the US and Sweden. Under his design alias, Infamous JeanClaude, his clients include skate shops, restaurants, record labels, and clothing brands. 


 

Vision

I am constantly creating, even while I sleep. My style blends illustration, symbolism, and abstract painting into a style I call, "neoglyphism". My paintings, drawings, and digital works are an exploration of inner self and relation to the outer world. Taking inspiration from different spiritual philosophies such as collective consciousness, and psychological theories from Carl Jung, I use art as a visuals mediation that is deeply personal yet universal at the same time. I consider myself an avid observer of self and others, and I document my reflections through a visual dialogue that aspires to be colorful and engaging. Music of all genres, but especially hip-hop/soul, remains a constant, grounding force in my life and inspiration for my art.
