Alain Godon: Around the World in Eighty Works

On February 12, our client Markowicz Fine Art hosted an event for the internationally renowned painter and sculptor Alain Godon, which they represent in the United States. Godon’s new exhibition, Around the World in Eighty Works, featured new sculptures from his Architectural series based on previous paintings of world-famous buildings from major cities around the world.

Godon began the architectural series in 2006, painting easily-recognizable scenes from major cities. His newest additions to the collection are sculptures depicting the landmarks in his paintings. His work has a unique style that captures every characterizing detail that embodies architectural structure.


Godon aims to create multiple structural points of view in his sculptures, creating a multi-faceted piece that impresses from every angle. The piece is then placed on a three-dimensional image to expose the landmark’s design elements.

To create the perfect atmosphere for the event, we worked with DJ Tavin Reiter who played contemporary lounge music as guests browsed Godon’s works. The bar, food and service was entrusted to Barok Catering, who served a selection of exquisite hors d’oeuvres, treating guests to delicious combinations of finger foods with an elegant presentation. The bar offered champagne, wine, and cocktails.

This event, the first fine art exhibition since Art Basel 2014, was held in the Miami Design District at Markowitz Fine Art Gallery's temporary location in the FAAM-Fine Arts Auction Miami gallery space at 80 NE 40th Street, Miami FL 33137. Gallery hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 AM to 7 PM. For more information, call 305.308.6398.
