The art and stuff of Alain Godon

The chrysalis turns into a but­ter­fly. Godon pays homage today to his town. Why when you have exhib­ited in all the large cities, includ­ing Lon­don and New York, have you devoted two years of your work to a series of paint­ings on Le Touquet?

I believe every­one in what­ever capac­ity should shout about the town they love. A few years ago I actu­ally put In front of Hubert Fla­ment a project, a project that was and still is very close to my heart, to cre­ate an art fes­ti­val for young painters, visual artists and pho­tog­ra­phers who often don’t get an oppor­tu­nity to show their work under the spot­light. Le Tou­quet isn’t just a tourist town, it’s a town where there is a very real artis­tic effer­ves­cence and this needs to be pub­li­cised. Besides this is where many of my col­lec­tors are based, and all my friends are here as well as all those who have worked hard to make me well known.
