Izik Lambez was born in Tel Aviv in 1970. From 1987 to 1991 he studied painting at the Joshua Griffit studio and for another four years he studied and worked with the well-known Israeli artist Menashe Kadishman.

The two developed a close friendship. Lovingly and respectfully, Kadishman wrote about the young artist: “Lambez was born an artist… A new generation of artists seems to have emerged here... a generation that wants to paint and live like a bird chirping every morning at the rising sun, that strives to paint as if swimming in the sea gravity-free, to have fun freely and naively.

Since 1994, Lambez has presented his works at numerous exhibitions in Israel, Spain, Brazil, and Germany. He lives and works in Israel and in Spain, dividing his time between Tel Aviv and La Gomera in the Canary Islands.

The artist loves the sea, and the sea returns its gratitude by serving as a major source of inspiration. It may be the influence of his age, though more probably a reflection of his personality, but the sea on his canvases is never stormy or angry, but rather friendly and calm. His daylight scenes convey the tranquility and warmth of a southern sea and are full of positive emotions and optimism. His night scenes resemble love serenades sung softly - so as not to disturb the peace and quiet of the night’s harmony.
