Canada Day

Leave a comment

I set up a pop up hälts ART gallery yesterday for the  Canada Day celebation. On the day my helper, and up coming artist Raya, helped to curate the display and I  set up a mini studio to do some live art. One of the things I like to do when making live art is to enagage with the public, including the younger folk and offer them the chance to make a mark. The result is pure magic, and this day was no exception.

I am always amazed by impromptu  collaborations,big MAHALO to everyone who contributed to the live art, Mahaloness all the way.

  

My bus art hapoened to be in the hood, a beacon of hope.  

Even a mark on a pallette can be a thing of beauty, abstract art at its finest.

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
