Phuong Nguyen (aka Jacquell) is a Vietnamese self-taught painter originally from Saigon, Vietnam and since 2017 she has moved to Bologna, Italy.
She works exclusively with watercolor on paper with a strong dedication for details and delicate brush strokes. Set in a dark yet poetic world, Phuong’s artworks embrace her oriental origin and the harmony between human and nature how such coexistence embodies certain subtle, clandestine messages.
