Visual Artist - Painting & Illustration
My name is Kyle Lambert and I'm a UK based visual artist that specialises in the creation of visually striking paintings and illustrations for film, television, advertising and print.
My work combines my passion for art, technology and storytelling. I trained as a traditional oil painter/illustrator and consider my main strengths to be the manipulation of colour, light and form to visualise story sequences, character designs and environment concepts.
I have a fine attention to detail, a strong work ethic and place a lot of emphasis on research and experimentation in my work. I thrive on the constant challenge to learn and improve as an artist and love what I do.
My clients include Apple, Adobe, BBC Television, GQ Magazine, Paramount Studios, Pixelmator, Savage Interactive and Wacom.

Tools I useI work from day to day on an Apple Mac Pro with the a Wacom Cintiq 21 UX and an Intuos 5 graphics tablet. I use a range of software including the Adobe Creative Suite, Autodesk Maya and Apple's Final Cut Studio.
When away from my Mac I use a combination of my sketchbook, SLR, iPhone and iPad to develop my ideas. On my iPad I use a number of art apps including Procreate, ArtRage and Adobe Ideas. My stylus of choice right now is the Nomad Brush Compose.

"Kyle is becoming widely known for his ability to create beautiful and imaginative photo-realistic artwork. We called on Kyle to help with our Adobe Touch Apps launch as we believed that he could show off our apps on the iPad and on Android tablets better than most. Kyle showed my team and me that the capabilities of our own products were beyond what we could have imagined. He drew a realistic looking eyeball with Adobe Ideas which is a vector drawing app. To say it was amazing was an understatement.
Kyle pushed the capabilities of the software as well and gave us valuable feedback to improve our technology. Not only is Kyle a gifted artist but he is well spoken, professional and kind- I felt comfortable asking him to speak directly to the press on Adobe’s behalf. Kyle is someone to keep your eye on."

"I loved working with Kyle, he is an excellent artist and works fast. His attention to details is in my opinion the best side of him. Not only that, he was one of the most organized artists I've seen. I would definitely hire him again in the future and hope to do so.”
