Miami – Alain Godon and his around the world in eighty works

Alain Godon painted his first draw­ings on the pave­ment in chalk. Today he is far removed from this type of street art. It is in a gallery, Markow­icz Fine Art, that he will be exhibit­ing his work from 12 February.

I t was dur­ing his hol­i­days in Le Tou­quet that the gallery owner, Bernard Markow­icz, fell in love with Alain Godon’s paint­ings. He bought one. “What I really loved about him was the joy­ous­ness, the lit­tle jokes and yet at the same time quite rig­or­ous: he is quite exact­ing.” “So, I tried to con­tact him, he said okay, in ten min­utes, in a café” recalls the col­lec­tor. And then both of them found things they had in com­mon, the same home town in the north of France. Ten min­utes turned into two hours.

Bernard Markow­icz con­vinced the artist to come to Miami where he wanted him to exhibit his work. “I wasn’t very keen on Miami to begin with” con­fessed the artist. “I had this image of a sea­side resort with body-​builder guys and breast-​implanted girls”. But once there, Alain Godon was pleas­antly sur­prised. Miami was noth­ing like the over­rated town he had expected. “I was blown away by the city’s archi­tec­ture” he remem­bers. “What bet­ter place for an artist who has made sky­scrap­ers and cityscapes his muses… Bernard Markow­icz has selected 80 works by the artist to give an audi­ence a jour­ney around the world with eighty works of art. A “travel card” com­pris­ing orig­i­nal paint­ings and sculptures.
