The story behind Nyusha Glenn
“In the darkness that seems oppressive and endless, you’ll have to find the light in yourself.
To see, that it is never completely dark. Even though it creates the illusion that it is.” -ng-
Nyusha Glenn is an Autonomous Photography and Digital Artist, Photo Comic Artist and storyteller.
Creating surrealistic conceptual & Illustrative storytelling images.
The core of his artwork is an experience and perception that concerns the inner struggle, inner demons and the emotional conflicts from within.
A surreal, cinematic and mental translation of an often confusing reality that arises from his own experiences/perception and his fantasy.
His art and stories are about loss, beauty, fear and the fight both against and with the inner demons and life itself.
It’s an continuous journey through a self-created universe that originates from dreams, emotions and the complexity of a confusing reality.
In which he can tell his stories as an image maker, artist and storyteller that is based on his own expierences, emotions and life.
Nyusha Glenn started with art and photography after an accident that not only drastically changed his entire life.
But it also changed how his brain functions and how he experiences emotions and his surroundings.
After more than 10 months in bed he picked up his old camera out of boredom and started to document
his days through pictures. With portraits of himself and his own family he captured the struggle, the fight against and with himself
and the pain during these emotional times. (Project: “Een leven met NAH”).
“The balance on a thin line only seems to exist in between” -ng-
In 2014 Glenn started writing and creating in secret the Photo Comic Art project “SYNCHO”TM.
An entire fictional universe that takes you on a epic story and expierence with his very own unique visual style and way of storytelling.
Tho It’s stories and characters in SYNCHO are based on his life and interpretations of his own reality and dreams, they are fictional.
“Everyday it feels as a never ending searchs and struggle to a new balance and purpose in life.
The universe of ‘SYNCHO’ gives me the freedom of storytelling and creating my own visual style.”
In 2017 Glenn started working on a project called “GUARDIANS”.
A project about inner demons and finding a balans between light versus darkness.
Based on the psychological Rorschach, Glenn started creating these beings can shape themselves to the unique vision and expierence of the viewer.
“Is light ‘the positive’ and is black than ‘the negative’ or is that just our own interpretation of our own experiences in life?”
The 9 Realms
In 2019 Glenn started with a new project called ‘The 9 Realms”.
A small concept art series of characters and worlds who are part of the 9 realms universe.
