Gonzo style self portrait I painted way back in my earlier days. This painting I called ‘Easty Westy’. I was heavy into reading about eastern philosophy and very much gonzo at the time, even though my experience had been predominately western. This painting went into my first solo show called ‘Soulspace’ (2006) a video I put together for my first solo show called Soulspace
It was a nerve wracking experience as it was my first solo show in a gallery, before this I really had not painted since high school. I had nine months to prepare the show. I completely surprised myself. The painting now resides in my friend Ricks place, he has one of the best Calgary contemporary art collections going, I am pretty honored to be hanging with the cream of the crop.
Mahalonessfoto – the painting hanging at Ricks and a foto of the view where my loving parents live, and a place I like to be (a future blog entry no doubt)
Peace, happiness and mahaloness to you all.

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
