WORCESTER – In his current show, Human Nature, local artist John Vo has captured the simple, poetic beauty of painting on silk, a technique he learned while studying in Vietnam.

Displayed on the brick city walls at Pageboy Inc. — a craft hair salon in Worcester — each piece has a mystique true to the origin of this soft, elegant style of painting.

Different in its use of the delicate white silk as background and light tones, each color is distinct in vibrancy and form as it flows through the wefts of the silk. From imagery to color to style, these works draw the viewer in with a curiosity for what they are looking at.


From a piece titled White Light that layers forms and subtle tones with the translucency of the fine silk, to a bright, impressionistic type piece titled A Place To Land, this show is a stunning representation unique to the artist and his culture.

Human Nature is on display through March at Pageboy Inc., located at 157 Harding Street, Worcester. Please call the salon at 774-243-1010 for open hours.

For inquiries about his work, commissions, and to purchase, please contact the artist, John Vo, at [email protected]
