Artist info


Louis Lambert (Lille, 1978) is a French artist living in Spain since 2001. 3ttman (pronounce “3 têtes man”) is his alter ego with three heads whom he began painting in the streets of Lille in 1999, according to the artist it depicts the profound complexity of human beings and the different views that arise from one same situation. The primitive art and its intuitive force particularly fascinate lambert. Multifaceted, he assimilates in his work popular languages to make clear the innate ability of any form of expression to transcend the mundane and become art. By paying special attention to material experimentation, he has innovated with a myriad of technics using cement, silicone, papier maché, oriental ceramics, and a wide range of different formats ranging from painting, sculptures… to large-scale mural work. To him, creative pleasure is inseparable from the process; he enjoys working and it is directly reflected in his particular style: dynamic, colorful, cheerful and authentic. His interventions have led him to work with renowned institutions such as the Tate Modern (Street walking tour 2008), El País (ARCO 2012), the Spanish embassy (realization of a mosaic wall 30 meters in Hanoi 2010), the MUVIM (Valencian Museum of the Enlightenment and modernity), and participate in top international mural festivals.

This print, which comes after the big wall realized by the artist in Marseille last September, has various reading keys, as the artist explained:

The title (“At the mercy of waves”) refers to our historical and social situation, with the covid waves stricking and locking us all down, the print represents the city of Marseille as a boat as a reminder that we all on the same boat when things go so difficult. 

It can also be read as a reflection about all the refugees who are lost at sea trying to reach a “better world”, but most of all I realized it as a tribute to women who explore, raise, feed, love, protect, keep us together… they have been doing that for centuries now and I think that, in these uncertain times, the World urgently needs woman common sense and understanding in the frontline to come back afloat.
