Michael Godard, The #1 Selling Artist in the World!



Michael Godard artwork doesn't just sit there on the wall waiting to be noticed...it
jumps out at the viewer with bold color, dramatic black backgrounds, and outrageous
humor!

Born in Southern California, Godard was a precocious kid with a multitude of talents
and a dark home life filled with hidden abuse. He excelled in math, music and art—
quite an achievement, considering that his family moved around so much that he
attended a total of sixteen different schools. Humor was always his defense and his
weapon. As a young man he attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena
and studied fine art at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas.

The decision to become a full-time painter came later in his life, after stints as a
mechanical engineer, commercial illustrator, caricature artist and successful
entrepreneur. Nothing came easy—he fought his way into an art career, inventing his
own path and his own one-of-a-kind style. Godard says, “First I learned the rules of
the art world, then forgot them all and painted the way I wanted to.”

Olives entered the picture when Godard was struggling through his daughter Paige’s
illness, spending long hours in the hospital when she was in a coma. Desperate for
some cheerful element to keep him afloat emotionally, he started a new series of
paintings--bringing olives to life in humorous scenarios, rendering them in bright
colors against a dramatic black background
