Wodaabe Dreamtime

Leave a comment

This painting was inspired by Werner Herzog’s film ‘Herdsmen of the Sun’ (1989) a documentary film that sheds light on the Saharan nomadic tribe called the ‘Wodaabe’. This painting is an example of what I call a paintamentary, although modern cave painting also fits nicely. Certain films and the cinematic experience have opened my mind up to new ideas and possibilities, and Werner is one of those people I would really love to meet and really thank him for doing the good work.

Signed Limited edition Fine Art prints are available in a variety of options and are available upon request. I have tried a few different online art gallery resources in the last few years, such as Saatchi online art where you can find more of my art and order prints. I have mixed feelings about online galleries, although Saatchi does offer a very user friendly experience and if anything you can see more art, so win win. I leave that up to you to decide. I am a one man micro business, with a quality versus quantity approach, most of my effort goes into producing work, that is what I love to do. Thank you.

Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials.

He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
