Nicknamed the “Rock Star of the Art World,” Michael Godard is one of the United Sates best selling artists. Michael grew up in Las Vegas where he has flourished as an artist creating incredible works of art. Godard’s more popular series “Don’t Drink and Draw” features animated olives and martinis; the art a commentary of our times as well as realistic masterpieces. Michael Godard finds a unique way of unfolding a delicate balance of texture, color, technique, realism, humor and imagination.

In describing “Seven Deadly Zins” Godard says, “I found a bracelet that had the seven deadly sins on it. I wanted to work on more wine pieces so I decided to call this the 7 Deadly Zins. Someone came over to my house and said that there actually is a wine called The 7 Deadly Zins. I use the red wine as a backdrop for the characters in the plot. The 7 Deadly Zins- pride, envy, anger, avarice, sadness, gluttony, and lust are portrayed by the purple grapes.” This piece has been beautifully inscribed by Godard on the back of the canvas with the words, “Sometimes its fun to be a little “zinful”! Don’t drink and draw!” Followed by his bold, FULL signature, and then a free-hand sketch of a grape walking, wine in hand, past a sign stating “WIne Tasting Today! This Way.” Once again, it is signed below the sketch with his characteristic signature “Godard.”
