José Pedro Godoy, Chilean artist born in Santiago de Chile in 1985, holds his Bachelor of Visual Arts studies at the Pontifical Catholic University, where he developed and perfected his interest in the human figure.
After ten years of career, Godoy is positioned as one of the most promising young artists in Chile. His work grandly presents the pictorial discourse, through pieces of a spectacular nature that surrounds and is given by its large format, descriptive level and colorful images.
His painting has a classic aesthetic of allegorical and realistic paintings to which he incorporates contemporary elements inspired by baroque sensitivity, mixed with homoerotic sensuality.
The male nude, the landscape in its wildest manifestation, the history of art or the idealization of the human figure, are themes with which this young Chilean artist has been seducing the viewer and the art scene, awakening the interest of collectors and gallery owners at national and international level, taking his work to form part of private and public collections in Chile, Argentina, Spain, Denmark and the United States.
