Jean-Gabriel Lambert was born in Montreal, Canada. The artistic journey he embarked upon twenty-five years ago has led him worldwide in a quest for inspiration. For the past few years, his favourite destination has been Mexico, Puerto Vallarta, where he has been inspired by the light and colours of its spectacular natural environment. Jean-Gabriel first came into the public eye through acting and dance. Later, he added writing and singing to his artistic accomplishments, and soon after, he began drawing and painting in a natural progression. The future of humanity and our relationship with others provide his creative motivation. Love, friendship and communication are both bearers of meaning and the impetus to act. Again and again, his canvases interweave intimate stories and universal issues. In "Global Warming," inner turbulence finds its echo in the cosmos. In another painting, we imagine ourselves floating above an immense landscape, and at the same time, we see a wound on a body. The paint is laid on densely, darkly, with blues the colour of night bordering with beaches, like waves of serenity. 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 a body, leaving the work open and in movement. A canvas never has a single meaning when seen through the eyes of others, it lives, and it grows. Jean-Gabriel Lambert's artistic expression continues to emerge and assert itself as he moves forward in life. His paintings' dialogue with the public nurtures him and gives him the desire to open it even further through his art.
