Alain Godon – a mod­ern poet

More than a gifted painter and inno­v­a­tive sculp­tor, French artist Alain Godon is poet that tells the story of our civil­i­sa­tion with pas­sion and humour. His work is a jour­ney to our own cities.

Godon is a metic­u­lous painter. One can only admire the pre­ci­sion of his brush­strokes, the dynamism of his con­struc­tions and the com­plex­ity of the sto­ries he tells through his own tech­nique called Bil­doRe­liefo, where he trans­forms his orig­i­nal oil paint­ings into unique dig­i­tal works of art. And then, there are sculp­tures – all inspired by his paint­ings. The per­fect fin­ish and pol­ish and the intri­cacy of the bronze work depict mon­u­ments with pas­sion and humour. The nar­ra­tive com­po­nent intro­duced into his sculp­tures is real and intense. It’s an archi­tec­tural rep­re­sen­ta­tion where art becomes language.

Six years ago Godon fell in love with Miami and, as a result, he pro­duced a series of paint­ings in homage to the city’s unique Art Deco pat­ri­mony, which was applauded at an exclu­sive exhi­bi­tion in 2011 at the New World Cen­ter. More recently the City of Miami Beach com­mis­sioned Godon to illus­trate the art­work for its 2015 Miami City Beach Report. The report’s images depict build­ings and scenery from Miami Beach. Godon was invited to exhibit at the Matisse Museum in 2017 to show­case art­work inspired in Tahiti – a rare oppor­tu­nity avail­able to a very few and a tes­ta­ment to his posi­tion as a world-​class artist.
