There is magic and there is work, you cannot have one without the other.

Fotomahaloness -despite the fact art is often undervalued and lacks integrity due to being entrenched in a society that is seemingly attached to favoritism, and popular trends, if it’s not a trend or a cause it is not worth it! My reaction to this is that the work must be done, and just to support this statement, the fotomahaloness below is some of my work, which I call night art, made in pitch black in the middle of a field next to my love, Lady Pacifica. The mural was covered over by Kone 2012 a day later. So why do it? Why do anything? When do we say enough’s enough, when do we say ‘I don’t want to numb myself!’ or accept the mediocre! As long as the world turns and I am here, I will continue to provide my service, whether or not that is deemed as valuable, the one thing I do know is that the art works, it moves, it is kid approved, and there is plenty of more work to do, even when it gets painted over, or shunned, this is alright, it is the cycle of life, thats what drives the process, the reaction to the action, the response to the absurdity, and on it goes again and again. And my art on a bus, magical, magic which no one can take away from me, for it is not for anyone to own.

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
