Claudia Godoy is a Brazilian sculptress naturalized in Italy.
Her versatile approach seeks a balanced union of beauty, elegance and creativity.
Born and raised in Brazil, the artist was a successful businesswoman until 2016; when she and her family moved to Italy. It was in the country of passion, art and pizza that Claudia found not only her true calling for sculpting but also herself.
The sculptress developed her technique in The Florence Studio of Fine Art and Florence Academy of Art.
Her main theme is the female universe, portraying the story and identity of women in their true form.
“Us women are all present in my work: we are all Tamara, Berenice, Maria, Marta, etc. All of us have these women inside of us. It’s almost like a symbiotic relationship in which we represent my sculptures and they represent us.”
Moreover, the artist’s style is influenced by a mixture of sensations and emotions, drawn from real life experiences. As well as the great masters of the past: Modigliani, Picasso and others.
“Having clay in my hands makes me happy, this way my creativity can easily flow. I believe when I’m sculpting I’m one with nature, femininity and myself.” ~ Claudia Godoy
