About

Nyahzul is a self-taught multi media artist born in Bogotá, Colombia and based in Brooklyn, NY. She has been actively creating,  exhibiting, and curating for over a decade across the U.S. in Los Angeles, Orlando, Detroit, New York City, Las Vegas and in her hometown of Bogotá. Currently she is the Associate Director of Rabbithole Studios in Brooklyn. Her complex personal works evoke magical and romantic narratives that explore the many facets of femininity, darkness and light within, and finding unity between the two. 

Her photomontage series AETHER, named after the element of unity that combines all five elements - Fire, Earth, Air, Water, and Aether itself, further explores these concepts in the female figure. The Pythagoreans (Greek Philosophers) honored Aether by embracing the Five-Pointed Star as their most sacred symbol. These photomontages are the exploration of the sense of self and awareness of the body (Earth) and spirit (Heaven) and their unity, as well as what exists beyond human awareness. The Element of Aether (Spirit) is the celestial energy that fills all spaces, being the conduit between our soul and our bodies. This is a search in unifying light and darkness and to understand their opposing natures as one being as well as their vital spiritual energy.
