the Tara painting

Leave a comment

Recently I began to paint my third Tibetan inspired Tara painitng. I was properly introduced to Tibetan art when I was on the the Big Island of Hawaii at an event called Alchemeyez, back in 2011. There I would meet a man by the name of Romio Shrestha. Romio had huge, beautiful Thangkas on display, and It is truly beyond words how extraordinary his work is. I remember a moment when I was looking at one of his paintings and completely forgot my self. I also recall the most wonderful peaceful feeling overtaking everything. Since than I have made it my commitment to learn more about Tibetan Art and with a little luck meet again with Romio in this lifetime with the intention to work with him. Although I try to stay true to the traditional artform, this would be considered a modern evolution in my own unique stlye. It is a both an homage and a testament to the Tibetan Tara, and to Romio’s work which continues to spread Dharma into this world.

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
