It is the journey that I will cherish until my last breath.

This project will always be shrouded in obscurity and mystery, in fact most folks do not even know who the author of this beast is, and perhaps that has been a blessing for me, the ability to make art and remain somewhat of a mystery is something I will appreciate for as long as it lasts, especially living in a world of repetition, namesake and copy.

fotoMahaloness Big Ha in all it’s glory. This is the result of unbridled creativity with some reckless abandonment, it took every ounce of my energy to complete because thats how I work. It has taken many years to actually see it, and be okay with it. The bus tells a story far out of the conventional norm. Three things influenced this bus art: my grandfather, Julian Nobert, Mother Earth and Hawaii. The rest just came in flashes of inspiration, drawing from drawings. For the majority of the time I worked alone, for 3-7 day stretches, a true test if nerve and will. The total length of time it took was around 3 months of work, in the middle of no where, in the dead of a Canadian winter. The spirit of creativity was omnipresent, and yes I made many mistakes, and many lessons have been learned. Perhaps I will paint another bus, I would jump at the opportunity given the right conditions. One last thing that is probably the biggest point, always ask if the object wants to be painted, this may not translate into your own personal happiness at the time, and it may take some time to ‘see it’ but it will be worth it, all of it, if you know what I mean.

one love

Author: hälts

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
