Phuong Nguyen (aka Jacquell) is a Vietnamese self-taught painter originally from Saigon, Vietnam and currently living in Bologna, Italy.
Her works focus on feminine beauty and she works mainly with watercolor with a keen dedication for details and delicate brush strokes. Set in a dark yet poetic world, Phuong’s artworks embrace her oriental origin, the harmony between human and nature and how such coexistence embodies certain subtle, clandestine messages.
