Leigh Lambert


LEIGH LAMBERT’S paintings are of cobbled streets in Newcastle but they could just as easily be set in Liverpool. Children peep around the corner of a brick wall or run excitedly towards an illuminated sweet shop – optimistic splashes of colour against dark, smoky backdrops of terraced houses, narrow alleyways and menacing cranes.

 It was only after the 33-year-old left his home city that he realised it’s important to him, felt a deep pride for the place where he, his parents and their parents before them had grown up.“When I was living there I just saw it as this grey, concrete jungle,” says Lambert, It came when he was looking at old photographs of Newcastle, from around the time his father was a boy and found himself thinking about the stories both his grandfathers had told him about life on Tyneside. His oil paintings are inspired by the streets where they lived – the Gateshead terrace owned by his Mum's dad William “Mickey” Curran and the East Newcastle house of his father’s dad Harry Lambert, built for the workers of the local armaments factory.

Born in Newcastle-Upon-Tyne in 1979 Lambert lived in the North East until in 1996 his family relocated to the beautiful town of Warwick, in Warwickshire, Central England. Leigh began to draw and paint from a very early age, in fact as soon as he could hold a pencil or paintbrush. As he progressed through his school years his attention to detail in his drawings and paintings became very apparent and is subsequently one of the characteristics that make his work so distinctive.
