He studied at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston and the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax. Xavier's work has taken him from the Caribbean to the United Kingdom, the United States and Canada where he gained a significant following and where his work has become part of both private and public collections including Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC, Museum of Modern Art, New York and Victoria & Albert Museum, London. Notes: From the private collection Chris Prater OBE the founder of Kelpra Studio, London. In 1957 Chris Prater OBE had set up in business as a commercial silkscreen printer. Being a joint venture, it was named after part of his wife Rose's maiden name - KELly, and Chris's surname - PRAter. After having worked on several art related posters, the transition to fine art prints was instigated by Gordon House followed by Eduardo Paolozzi who quickly came to appreciate the flexibility of the medium. It was Richard Hamilton was suggested a portfolio of silkscreen prints to the ICA. A total of 24 artists contributed to the project, which was published in 1964. Although for most of those participating it was to be a one-off experience, it did put silkscreen printing on the map. For others, particularly those of a Pop predisposition, working in the medium gave them the green light to tear up the old rulebook and open up new horizons that questioned the very definition of 'print'. Eduardo Paolozzi created collages which combined a whole range of patterns and imagery. He sometimes changed colours with each printing, which meant that no two examples of the edition were the same. This was controversial as it went against the perceived definition of limited edition print where every print should be identical. The secret of Kelpra Studio's success was not just the innate craftsmanship but also Chris Prater offered a collaboration that gave him the ability to build a unique rapport with each artist.
