Artist Bio: Born in Birmingham in 1957 Godwin graduated from the Royal College of Art in 1982 with a MA in Printmaking, immediately afterward gaining subsequent positions as both a copperplate printer and plate maker with various professional studios in London. This period proved to be priceless in terms of Godwin’s continued education and practical involvement with the materials and mediums of an industry as his etching skillset increased and developed naturally, an area which had long piqued his interest. It also afforded him unlimited access to a diverse cross-section of professional artists, which is always hugely important when looking to exchange ideas and ascertain feedback on your own work.
Carefully dividing his time between his printmaking (9 – 5) demands and his paintings (spare time) preferences, Godwin worked relentlessly, which eventually led to recognition by both art galleries and dealers, especially on the tails of accumulative successes through exhibitions, art fairs and the like. This in turn also brought about the onset of commissioned work. Landscape has always been Godwin’s thing, and has never showed any illustrative signs of letting up any time soon, something confirmed by the artist himself when addressed on the very topic. Godwin; “For as long as I can remember my work has been concerned loosely with the general theme of landscape,” adding: “While working in London my major source of inspiration was the ‘cityscape’ with its energy and motion, its constantly evolving architecture, and its changes of rhythm throughout the day and night”.
