Alain Godon BiographyAlain Godon was born on November 1st ,1964 in Bourges, France. At the age of 11, he learned how to draw with his uncle, an artist in Achicourt, France. In 1985 he moved to Paris and then to Brighton (UK), earning his life doing graffiti on pavement. In 1988, he lived in Courchevel, during the first period of what he calls “Childish Art”. In 1989 Alain moved to Saint Tropez where he created his first oil on canvas. He currently lives in London. Jean-Pierre Delarge -"Related to figuration free , it attracts forms caricature, from his work as graffiti. The colors are bright, the black line is thin, although simplified matters by dint of curves and straight lines, they are bypassed. It flows into the readability with Jules Verne (2001, Museum of le Touquet), multiplication of borders around the dishes to, like Valerio Adami but much more nutritious, triangulation of the interior that matches the light and the geometric figure and its environment, (1997). The deformation of Parisian monuments longer consider expressionist to a cataclysm figures are naives skies and unusual colors, (2008)."
In 2009, Alain Godon founded the "Rendez-vous Annuel des artistes de demain" (Annual meeting of tomorrow's artist). This event aims to reveal to the public and professionals new artists by giving them access to places with great exposure. Nearly 600 participants representing all schools of contemporary art attended the second edition in 2010. Through this initiative, Alain Godon, showed his support for unknown artists so that they have, in turn, the opportunity to get noticed and get out of anonymity.
