Abstract artist Jean-Gabriel Lambert was born in Montreal, Canada.
Jean Gabriel Lambert first came into the public eye through acting and dance. As his artistic talent developed, his imagination took free rein and soon after, in a natural progression, he began drawing and painting.
His canvases interweave intimate stories and universal issues, some canvases embody the warmth of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, in other canvases we can imagine ourselves floating above an immense landscape. The paint is laid on densely, darkly, with palette knife.
The human form is never very far away. Often, figures insinuate themselves into the paintings, taking shape through the abstract gestural flux. Figurative images rise to the surface: here we see a mouth and there, a body.leaving the work open and in movement. A canvas never has a single meaning when seen through the eyes of other, it lives and it grows.
Jean-Gabriel Lambert’s artistic expression continues to emerge and assert itself as he moves forward in life. The dialogue with the public provoked by his paintings nurtures him and gives him the desire to open it ever further through his art.
The artistic journey that he embarked upon twenty-five years ago has led him around the word in a quest for inspiration. For the past few years, his favorite destination has been Mexico, Puerto Vallarta in particular, where he is inspired by the light and colors of its spectacular natural environment.
