Why Penelope Cruz? "For her charisma, her path that brought her from a very simple life in the suburbs of Madrid to Hollywood. Her incomparable talent, of course, and her associative commitment to underprivileged children has touched me a lot." Hom Nguyen

From her first film role in Jamón Jamón, by Bigas Luna, she burst onto the screen. Since then, she has never left it. An icon of Spanish cinema, a favorite actress of Pedro Almodóvar, she has worked with the greatest, won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actress in Woody Allen's Vicky Cristina Barcelona, where she met her compatriot Javier Bardem, with whom she has two children.

The artist


Hom Nguyen

Famous artistFamous artist
Born in 1972


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 perfected in Japan with the great tattoo masters of the Shibuya district, in the center of Tokyo. On his return to France, he devoted himself to drawing and painting, and set up a studio in Bagnolet, a suburb of Paris.

Self-taught, lively, instinctive, Hom Nguyen articulates his work around the human figure and the complexity of trajectories. He has notably created portraits of legionnaires from the 2nd Foreign Parachute Regiment, by definition stateless and rootless. He also runs a drawing workshop in the psychiatric department of the Pitié Salpêtrière hospital in Paris.
