Born in Vietnam.

Nam comes from Vietnam and joined FABI for postgraduate study in 2016 and is currently a PhD candidate in the Institute. Growing up with science runs in the family, Nam says, “I have long nourished an ambition to become a well-known plant pathologist.”

This kinship with the natural science world is the basis for his artwork. He is always trying to reach beyond the traditions, in which plant materials and different paint textures are usually brought together in a surface to describe the harmony he sees in nature and the universe. As a self-taught artist, Nam says he experiences peace during the process of creating his artworks.
