Michael Godard (aka the «Naughty Artist») has appeared on MTV, ABC, NBC, OCN, KOCE, KCET, Evening Magazine, along with radio and magazine interviews and over a dozen art shows. His work is collected by celebrities, private collectors, and can be found in numerous selected art galleries, homes and businesses throughout the US. He is the first artist commissioned in California to paint a life-size-cow, part of the New York and Chicago «Cows on Parade» which has appeared on the Today Show, Oprah and many media formats.
Godard has known since childhood that it is paint that flows thru his viens. Michael attended the University of Nevada in Las Vegas with a Fine Arts major and later attended Art Center College of Design in Pasedena. After college he began work as a freelance illustrator with such clients as Coca Cola, Dodge, Sax Fifth Avenue, and a dozen other well known corporations.
Although the themes vary, Godard's Art changes the face of even the most traditional subjects, creating mood and mystery on canvas at times painted so realistic you feel as though 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.
