The paintings of artist David Lambert have received acclaim in cities across the country for their spontaneity, exuberance and raw energy. The characters that populate his works are often depicted in strange, dreamlike situations, illustrating the psychoanalytical principle of free association.
Lambert was born in Alaska and grew up on Air Force bases. As a kid he would draw for hours on end, and would doodle characters during classes at school. One of his early influences were comic books and Sunday funnies.
Lambert moved to McComb, MS where his grandparents lived, as a senior in high school. He went to Delta State, then Ole Miss. Not long afterward, Lambert became manager of Bryant Galleries, a job he still holds.
His work is included in the Collections of the Morris Museum of Art, Augusta, GA; The Ogden Museum of Southern Art, New Orleans, LA; Mississippi Museum of Art, Jackson, MS; Ohr-O'Keefe Museum of Art, Biloxi, MS; Meridian Museum of Art, Meridian, MS; and Delta State University, Cleveland, MS.
