By Hom Nguyen
Born in France in 1972 to Vietnamese parents from the boat people generation, Hom Nguyen first sold shoes before specializing in shoe patina. He developed a technique that he went to Japan to perfect with the great masters of tattooing in the Shibuya district of central Tokyo. Back in France, he devotes himself to drawing and painting, and settles in a workshop in Bagnolet.
Self-taught, lively, instinctive, the artist articulates his work around the human figure and the complexity of its trajectories. He has created portraits of legionnaires of the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment, who are by definition stateless and rootless.
He runs a drawing workshop in the psychiatric ward of the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital in Paris.
