Had the great pleasure to meet and visit artist Gustavo Godoy at his studio in Los Angeles.
Not only was it cool to see where he creates his monstrous sculptures, but it was really worthwhile to listen to him reminisce about his past shows at Honor Fraser, The Happy Lion, and the Wexner Center. I particularly appreciated learning about his process and inspirations for his art. It was fun to hear that he engages his kids in his art also.
Gustavo brought out a mold he used to cast his concrete sculptures.

work in progress…
He had a lot of books and recommended to us Pictures of Nothing by Kirk Varnedoe. It’s about appreciating abstract art. His enthusiasm for the book really got me interested, and I’m considering picking it up after I finish the 10 books I’m currently reading.
more works out on display…

i particularly liked this one.
this piece was exhibited at The Happy Lion in Chinatown, and at The Gagosian in Beverly Hills.
