We’ve all read the famous book of Jules Verne, Around the World in Eighty Days, right? Brave Phileas Fogg accepts the challenge. […] He also inspired many artists in days to come; one of them is well known French painter and sculptor Alain Godon.
Continuing his architectural series that begun in 2006, his exhibition “Around the World in Eighty Works” will feature his new sculptures of symbols for some of the most famous places in the world. Sculptures of aforementioned Big Ben, Statue of Liberty or the Hollywood sign, Chrysler building in New York and Moulin Rouge in Paris were made in bronze and each of them is related to a painting that Godon has already made – symbolic, there will be 80 artworks shown at the exhibition “Around the World in Eighty Works” that will be held in the Markowicz Fine Art Gallery in the Miami Design District.
