Tredel

Aurora CA August 2017
Tredel J. Lambert is a skilled Illustrator, Character Developer, and Concept Artist whose works have been displayed at the Aurora Art Show, Markham Art Show, and VCA Art Show.

Tredel’s process begins with a commitment to telling the story - capturing emotion, tone, and setting. His unique style brings the people, places, and emotions depicted to life in an honest and authentic way.

Using a combination of acrylic, oils, Masonite, ink, and digital media Tredel is not afraid to explore new materials that will best connect with the audience and communicate the message.

When asked about his artistic goals, Tredel simply said “I want to be known for my ability to tell a story or build a world – whether it’s in a painting, a children’s book, a graphic novel, or storyboarding an entire feature film.”

Tredel enjoys Fantasy, Sci-Fi, Surrealism, alternate realities, space, comedy, and figures – something that stared and was nurtured in childhood.

Growing up with limited resources, Tredel turned to his imagination to create the world he knew he wanted to live in. Movies and comic culture that influenced a younger Tredel included Like Mike, Dragon Ball Z, Naruto, Hunter X Hunter, Spiderman, Green Lantern, Superman, and Jackie Chan. He was further encouraged when meeting and chatting with legendary icon Stan Lee in person at Toronto’s Comic Con.

Tredel developed a passion for storytelling; studying and mastering the art of creating images and words that danced together - weaving alternate realities. Encouraged by his mother, Tredel’s art was proudly displayed on the walls of his home – allowing him to literally color his universe.

By highschool Tredel had chosen Art as his career. He was inspired by quality Teachers and deepened his passion while taking a trip to Europe with his art class. Studying the paintings and sculptures of historical greats cemented Tredel’s commitment to the arts.

By graduation Tredel already won the Excellence in Arts Award at his school two times, had received the Alliance of Black Educator’s Art Achievement Award, and had even been nominated for a Community Character Award for his winning personality and volunteer work.

Media attention garnished by his larger-than-life sized sculpture of an Alien entitled "The Invasion of Drama" displayed at the Aurora Art Show further fueled Tredel’s artistic drive.

Early in his development Tredel was also profiled in the media for his historical portrait of York Region’s first ever Black Deputy Police Chief.

Tredel is a graduate of the prestigious Sheridan College where he holds an Advanced Diploma in Visual and Creative Arts. He has also attended several other art training programs to further advance and hone his skills.

Tredel is available for freelance work as a professional Illustrator, Concept Artist, Graphic Artist, Storyboard Artist, and for Character Development.
