About Steve


“Steve Lambert, a conceptual artist […], is, depending on your perspective, a wry cultural critic or a loose cannon who must be stopped.” – Adweek Magazine

“Many artists aspire to be revolutionary, but Steve Lambert is truly original and radical.“ – Sarah Kirk Hanley, print curator

“He’s an artist, activist, interventionist, teacher, leader, role model, and technology guru.“ – Michelle Levy, Elizabeth Foundation

“Steve Lambert – his person and his work – exists on a continuum in a long line of absurdist provocateurs hell bent on changing the world for the better one sincere, well-formed, slightly ridiculous gesture at a time.” – Sam Gould, artist, Red76

“Steve Lambert has been a provocateur for over ten years now, and he continues to shock, inpire, and spur us to action” – Patrick Frank, author and art historian.

“That’s a wonderful spoof!” – Howard Zinn, historian, regarding Emma Goldman Institute for Anarchist Studies
