Es­tab­lished artist Lam­bert Ho de­scribes him­self as an in­ter­dis­ci­pli­nary artist who is able to cre­ate beauty from the sub­lime.

The 46-year-old, will be one of the artists that will be fea­tured at the Na Koro Mar­ket this Sun­day at the Fiji Mu­seum in Suva. Mr Ho said he cre­ated art with any­thing he saw that could be mixed, tied, sewn, screwed, plaited, pasted, painted.

“When it’s time to cre­ate, any­thing is used,” he said. Mr Ho started devel­op­ing his pas­sion for art ever since he was in­tro­duced to paint and butch­ers pa­per in kinder­garten un­til to­day. He said he gained courage when peo­ple ap­pre­ci­ated his art and buy it to grace their homes.

“I feel whole, that my jour­ney as an artist is ful­fill­ing them, now and for the fu­ture,” he said. “A lot of my ‘other works’ have been com­mis­sioned so most of Fiji hasn’t seen them, they are in homes around the world, in mu­se­ums in Canada, New Zealand and Lon­don Fab­ric art and fash­ion is some­thing I still do,” he said. Cur­rently, Mr Ho is work­ing on his first solo ex­hi­bi­tion ever with new art pieces. Na Koro Mar­ket or­gan­iser Peter Sipeli urged every­one to take ad­van­tage of the mar­ket which would host kids games, yoga, tai chi and salsa dance classes at no charge. It runs from 8an to 4pm.
