Duyen Nguyen, Nguyen Johnson Co.

"I'm passionate about my art, and let nothing stand in the way of creation."  -Duyen Nguyen

Duyen Nguyen's work synthesizes representation and abstraction in paintings where energy is made visible and characters (-animal, human and plant) co-exist in spontaneous environments. Nguyen's expressionistic  style, the ease with which she works various materials, and her willingness to experiment with media, foster the creation of mysterious places, and other worldly moods. Her works reflect her unique interests in beauty, folklore and Vietnamese culture. 

Duyen Nguyen is a self-taught visionary artist from Vung Tau Province in Vietnam. She has created over 1000 works since she began making art and fashion in November of 2016. 

The Nguyen Johnson Company is located in Thibodaux, Louisiana, USA.
