Hom Nguyen, born in Paris in 1972, is a self-taught artist with an instinctive style.
His works are as non-conformist as he is. Working with charcoal, gouache felt, oil, or even pen, each one of his paintings appears to be a fight, a hand-to-hand combat with the material from which arises a desire: to reveal the depths of human nature through lines and color.
The majority of Hom’s work revolves around the creation of monumental portraits. The choice of colors, the application of materials, and the vivacity of his gestures all have the goal of showing the world his vision of humankind beyond appearances. His works capture and transcend the depth of feeling and the complexity of emotions that torment the human soul.
His subtle representations address the duality of the visible and the invisible, the material and the immaterial. In this regard, Hom Nguyen pushes each one of us to reflect on what we show of ourselves, what we try to hide, and who we really are.
