Art fans will have a rare opportunity to meet the artist Leigh Lambert when he appears at Montague’s Gallery in King’s Langley on February 25.

Lambert’s works have been compared to the urban landscapes of L.S Lowry, although he contrasts his smoky, industrial backdrops with splashes of bright colour, capturing both the excitement and energy of youth today and a heart-warming sense of nostalgia. As well as featuring images from his own childhood in 1980s Newcastle, Lambert’s paintings depict details from older generations, such as children dragging bags of coal and the infamous Newcastle ships docked at the end of terraced streets.

He is known for his attention to detail – some paintings contain as many as 20,000 bricks – and in 2014 he was shortlisted as Best Up and Coming Artist in the Fine Art Trade Guild Awards.

On February 25 (7-9pm) Montague’s Gallery will be exhibiting a number of rare, highly sought-after original artworks along with his three latest Limited Editions; a fourth edition will be unveiled by Leigh personally on the night. Lambert will also reopen his commission book for one night only – and all artworks purchased at the exhibition will receive a personal dedication.
