Michael Godard
 

BIOGRAPHY:

Godard's work is widely collected by movie stars, rock stars and private collectors, from young to old and from all walks of life. Godard's imaginative world of art is seen by millions of people worldwide each month in popular venues such as cruise lines, galleries, hotels, television, magazines and countless merchandising kiosks and stores. His paintings even adorn the walls of the officer's lounge in the Pentagon.

Godard's world of art invites the viewer into his lighthearted perspective of life that surrounds us all, mirroring our lives through martinis adorned with animated olives, drunken grapes and dancing strawberries, as well as his own vices of gambling and the good life. Godard's unique portrayal of fun is an exciting combination of imagination and often subtle humor which evokes and engages the creative side in "Olive" us. Paintings depicting inebriated grapes, gangster olives, flirtatious strawberries and flaming dice have taken the conservative art world and turned it on its head, redefining art as we know it, always with a delightfully slap-stick punch line. Today Michael Godard is considered one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time.
