  • Conrad Jon Godly


Starting his artistic path as a painting student, the Swiss artist Conrad Jon Godly returned to the medium of oil painting in his mature years, after over a decade of working as a photographer. Following the inner voice of the Bündner Alps in his home region, Godly constantly seeks to represent the pure essence of the mountains with daring and powerful brushstrokes and a minimum pallet. Godly’s mountain painting methodology is in such sympathy with that of the genre of sansui painting (the Chinese-style landscape painting) that the art historian and critic Yamashita Yuji addresses his works as ‘sansui oil paintings’.
