BIO

Lambert Graduated with a degree in Illustration in 2003 and has been working as a full time artist since 2010. His work has gathered a significant following in recent years and his 2017 solo exhibition was a near sell out. Matt's work is collected internationally, and in 2016 the Telegraph named him as one of their ‘British Artists To Invest In’. As a co-founder of the Pass It On Africa (PIOA) charity along with best friend James Macdonald, he is also one of the organisers of Brighton’s annual Heroes Run – an superhero themed family fun run along the seafront that has been running since 2005. As well as being PIOA's principle fundraiser the event has helped raise thousands for 20 other charities over the years. The Heroes Run event was the starting point for Matt's work on masks and exploration into identity.

Lambert’s efforts with PIOA have helped fund 5 school building projects in Kenya, Ghana, The Gambia and Uganda respectively. This experience has massively influenced his artworks, inspiring him to ask open ended questions about the human condition.

"The privilege of witnessing first hand both the day-to-day concerns of the developing world and my own culture has been surprising. Excess and greed is present in both extremes but so is hope and kindness. The cultural disparities are huge but at the same time there are behavioural universals that transcend culture and this is what drives my ideas."
