quality over quantity

I do make wearable art, its been a thing I do since 2003. Living in a world that largely relies on mass production, I get a lot of joy out of the fact that there are approximately 150 of my original hand painted items around the globe that people enjoy, some who I have met personally and others who I never met. The imagery changes from item to item, some are custom while others are of my own imagination. It is yet another way I have chosen to get my art out into the world, other than just a gallery or that kind of thing. The technique is similar to my regular paintings, although it does have some similarities to tattooing as I have to really work the pigment dependong on the fabric or surface. Each item does take time and quite a bit of patience to make, quality over quantity, using largely recycled clothing items, reducing the human footprint on our Earth, if only in a small amount, big over time.

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
