Ok, I know it's so damn corny to quote somebody just to describe yourself, let alone Confucius, but this quote says all about my relationship with Widewalls, so forgive me for doing this: Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life. Am I forgiven?
Christophe Lambert is a Swiss artist, known for his autodidact Punk art. He is also the owner and chief editor of the Edition Luciver – a self-publishing punk zines, starting in 2012.
Le Mal de Vivre
Lambert was born in 1970 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, in the canton of Neuchâtel in Switzerland.
Coming from the sub-culture of punk and hard core, this artist simply skipped the routine and the obvious paths of one artist. Following the philosophy of DIY, Christophe created very rich oeuvre – his pretty much eclectic work includes films, illustrations, zines, graphic design, sculpture and collage. Lambert’s original luxury punk art vigorously invites the viewers to step into various avant-garde scenes, and to experience it, right from its source.

Lambert seems to be always in the move, creating, experimenting and crossing the borders every time a bit further into the unknown territories. Depicted anxiety he shows us has only one aim: to constantly manipulate and re-appropriate, taking anything and everything sacred and pulling at it until it is profane once more.
