Godard’s work is highly collected by movie stars, rock stars, private collectors, from young to old from all walks of life. Godard’s imaginative world of art is seen by millions of people each month world wide such as cruise lines, galleries, hotels, television, magazines and countless merchandising kiosks and stores. His paintings even adorn the walls of the officer’s lounge in the Pentagon.

Godard’s world of art invites us in to his lighthearted perspective of life that surrounds us, mirroring our lives through martinis with animated olives, drunken grapes, dancing strawberries, including his own vices of gambling and the good life. Godard’s unique portrayal of fun is an exciting combination of imagination and often subtle humor which evoke and engage the creative side in “Olive” us. Paintings depicting drunken grapes, gangster olives, dancing strawberries, and flaming dice have taken the conservative art world and turned it on its heel redefining art as we know it with a new definition and of course a punch line. Today Michael Godard is considered one of the most prolific and influential artists of our time.
