Botanical Art by Duy Anh Nhan Duc

Duy Anh Nhan Duc is a visual artist who handles botanical art in a singular way. This self-taught, which places no barrier to his artistic approach, likes to imagine the impossible. He merges plants to the human body, integrates them with the object, applies them by thousands on his frescos or combines them with his videos and drawings.
