Marc Lambrechts was born in Lier, Belgium, in 1955. Lambrechts’ early studies in printmaking took place at the Higher Sint-Lucas Institute in Brussels, Belgium, after which he obtained a scholarship to study in Bratislava, Slovakia. Upon returning to Belgium, he started working as a visual artist in charge of graphics and displays at the Center for Brussels Amateur Theater. His prints soon received widespread acclaim, which led to collaborations with Moving Space Gallery in Ghent. In 1983, he moved to New York City and continued practicing printmaking at the Pratt Institute. It was in New York he started to paint and quickly acquired attention. The first breakthough came with being selected to exhibit at the Soho Center for Visual Arts in a show sponsored by the Aldrich Museum of Contemporary Art, Connecticut. Representation by Tibor de Nagy Gallery, New York, came next. His first solo exhibition with the gallery was featured in Art News.
Lambrechts has exhibited extensively throughout the United States and Europe over the years. His work is currently featured in private, corporate and institutional collections worldwide.
