Pelicans, London 1


John Lambie graduated in Architecture in 1976. During the recession of 1990-93 he taught himself to paint, and has since successfully entered various competitions and held several exhibitions. His subject matter is rich and varied, and often inspired by extensive foreign travel. His first one-man show was held in Cork Street – a record of a trip to Rajasthan; the second, paintings of the works of Antonio Gaudi, at the RIBA – this then transferred to Barcelona for the duration of the Olympics. He has also shown at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours, Royal Watercolour Society, Sunday Times Watercolour Competition, Equestrian Artists Society, Wildlife Artists Society, Pastel Artists, Royal Horticultural Society, and various private galleries. Examples of his work have appeared in the Guardian, Building Design and Horse and Hound. His current obsession is with birds, inspired, no doubt, by his hobby of gliding. Artistically he has many influences, from modern day super realists and 1950’s book illustrators, through to the Victorian garden painters and Orientalists. Above all, he hopes that the craftsmanship and technique which he values is evident in his work.
