Hom Nguyen, born in Paris in 1972, is a self-taught artist with instinctive style.
As an unconventional personality, his works are just as much. Working with charcoal, gouache felt, oil or even pen, each of his paintings appears as a combat, a hand-to- hand confrontation with matter from which arises a will: to reveal the deepest of the hu- man being through the lines and color.
Most of Hom’s work revolves around the creation of monumental portraits. The choice of colors, the application of the material or the vivacity of the gesture are always done in order to show to the world his vision of the human being beyond appearances. His works capture and transcend the depth of feelings and the complexity of the emotions that overwhelm the human soul.
His subtle representations deal with the duality of the visible and the invisible, the material and the immaterial. Thus, Hom Nguyen pushes each of us to a re ection, an introspec- tion, on what we show of ourselves, what we are trying to hide and what we really are.
