The painter Jang Lamborelle was born in Wiltz in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg on December 23rd, 1962. He was raised in a tiny village in this part of the country, the rugged North known as the Ardennes or Éislek.
His fascination for drawing and painting dates from early childhood. As a young man, led by his nomadic spirit, he travelled the Americas (Bolivia and Guatemala) where he spent several years living close to the indigenous population. He worked both as a medical assistant and a painter, picturing characters from all walks of life with their joys and sorrows, thus documenting their way of living and customs as well as their wildlife environment. His art springs from a genuine love of his fellowmen and a deep interest in their relationship with Mother Earth.
In his recent serie ‚Yearning for Peace‘ the Artist expresses his alarm concerning man’s reckless attitude towards his own kind and our common living space. In these large frescoes, we are often faced with an apocalyptic vision of our future.
Always in quest of new horizons, Jang Lamborelle deliberately shifts styles and perspectives. He prefers large canvases as supports of his artistic evolution. His frequent use of symbolic language creates an atmosphere which, according to his subject, may be dreamlike or naively innocent and become more realistic, sometimes dramatic or even violent. To make his point, the artist will defy political correctness.
