Artist Michael Godard has known since childhood that it is paint that flows through his veins. Michael attended the University of Nevada in Las Vegas with a Fine Arts major and later attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. After college Michael Godard began work as a freelance illustrator with such clients as Coca Cola, Dodge, Sax Fifth Avenue, and a dozen other well known corporations. Michael Godard's photo realistic art changes the face of even the most traditional subjects, creating mood and mystery on canvas at times painted so realistic you feel that the subjects will reach out and touch you. Godard finds unique ways of unfolding this delicate balance of texture, color, technique, realism, humor, and imagination to evoke drama and emotion.Oh My God ... ard! Are usually the first words out of peoples' mouths when they view Michael Godard's works. From the mind of an artist who does not drink, comes his vision of fun that fits most people's lifestyle.
