Alain Godon lives in London, exhibits from Paris to New York via Bali. His work is in such high demand that it is impossible to buy even one of Alain Godon’s paintings. Every private viewing of this forty seven year old artist has been a resounding success.
Alain Godon is a pioneer of a new movement: “Esperantism”. Esperantism is to painting as Esperanto is to language: a universal communication between mankind,” said Hubert Konrad, co-founder of ArtPrice. Notable figures such as Christian Boeringer, former Commercial Director of the Louvre Museum, and Patrice Deparpe, Director of the Museum of Le Touquet, have dedicated a book to Alain Godon, describing him as one of the best painters of his generation.
A subtle and discerning sociologist, the very antithesis of packaged thinking, Alain Godon transcribes the world that surrounds us and transcribes its harsh reality with childlike shapes and colours. The themes of his work are universal and know no boundaries. He portrays society “as it is”: his uncompromising messages prompt us with amusement to pause and reflect.
