My name is Phuong Nguyen (aka Jacquell on social media) I’m a Vietnamese self-taught painter originally from Saigon and since 2017 I have moved my base to Bologna, Italy.
I work exclusively with watercolor on paper and I have a special love for details and delicate brush strokes. Set in a dark yet poetic world, my artworks embrace my oriental origin and the harmony between human and nature how such coexistence embodies certain subtle, clandestine messages.
