Get To Know: Brisk Yunus
My name is Brisk and I'm 19 years old from London, Ontario. I was born here in Canada and proud. My parents moved straight here from Kurdistan and being raised here I've learned a lot and been given opportunities to do things here such as express art. I've always considered myself an artist simply because almost everything I do is through creativity. For the past 4 years music has always been a passion of mine and I've been working with different sounds and structures to make different projects. The more I work on it, the more I'm growing through that field, which makes me create new things. I have 3 albums currently out but my most recent self-titled album "BRISK" is my best work to date. Most of my musical work is instrumental, but my goal is to paint pictures in your head without the use of vocals because it creates an experience for every listener. My music is under the name NEMESIS. I decided to go with this name because I feel like it fits with exactly what I'm doing. I've always felt like I've had downfalls in life and wanted something that is against what most of society thinks so, this name fits perfectly for my work. Music isn't my only passion though, I am currently in Fanshawe college for Interactive Media Design and feel like this is something I truly want to do as a career. I've always been into photography, image design and even some web development.
My dream is to be a designer in the media field so I can express my arts digitally. I've been told a lot that being an artist is hard to get a career or a living with but I simply disagree and only want to prove that's not always the case. If you have a skill in a field that let's you express your creativity that's considered art, you can go a long way with it. It's all about knowing what you're doing and having a clear path that has an end goal so even if things get in the way, that path still needs to be followed so you get to the end. For example if drawing is your passion, find ways you can make that a living such as being a graphic designer. You just need to find how you can express yourself to make a living out of it, which is why I plan to be a media designer. Even though music is another one of my passions I try to find different ways to use it so it's something I can expand on. Even having these skills can make your passions become your dreams so taking that risk is worth it. Being Kurdish is something I find pride in and only want the best for Kurdistan. Not being born there is hard for me to adapt because I've only visited once but I hope to visit more so I can see how much it's grown since I've last been there back in 2009. In the end I briefly describe myself as a Kurdish artist living in Canada. I do music and media design and wish to fulfill my dreams by taking the risks to get there.
Thank you for taking the time to get to know me and hope you all get what you want in life. Blessings to you all
