Work as Play


I am a bit tired after a long week working on a film set. It was a surreal experience, and a lot of hard work, mostly night shoots, so going to bed at 5 am became the routine. Before going to bed I worked on my paintings, and if experience has taught me one thing, you can paint even when you are exhausted. Painting is meditation, it is breathing, and no matter what we have the ability to be aware of the breath and subsequently control it. The act of meditation quiets the mind, and when the mind is quiet the work flows effortlessly. This is a place where I call home, when I am in creative practice. There is no beginning or end, there is only the will to continue on, breathing while working with, playfully, the medium of choice, the brush, the pencil, the knife, and witnessing the journey to wherever it is I am going.

Hi my name is hälts, I am a Canadian artist, geographer, film worker and mostly a human being. I did not grow up thinking I wanted to be an artist, things just kind of fell into place. Art is a special gift humans have developed since inception. Mother Earth is the greatest artist, and who keeps me humble on my path. I mostly paint, and use acrylic with an assortment of brushes and touches, and sometimes watercolour. I am also well rounded with airbrush skills, spray paint, digital art and production, filmmaking, photography and drawing. I make fine art work, small paintings, big paintings, murals, wearable art, functioning art, and art for healing. I go wherever calls. I inspire while also being inspired by this planet, and my fellow beings. Life is a gift, and that's how I treat it. If that's not enough for you, then perhaps someone else can fill your expectation. I have no one to impress, I don't do this to be cool, and I care about this planet as much as Greta Thunberg, thank you very much, and all the life it sustains. I am not pro this person or that person, politically agnostic, I am spiritual, I am happy, I am sad, I am love, I am fear, I am joy, I am sorrow, I am all that humans are. I don't care about celebrities endorsements, and reminder there are many folk out there doing their part for Mother Earth, in their own way long before the current movement, upheaval does not create forever change, it goes in cycles, it always has and it always will, just sit in front the ocean and see it for yourselves. Most of all I just am. Thank you kindly, hälts
