So many things:

to write

to say

to give

to share

to do…

 

breathe

do what you can and be okay with that, than do some more.

 

And now a quote by Alejandro Jodorosky (if you are unfamiliar look him up, I recommend watching his film, ‘El Topo’ but than again it is your adventure),

‘Once the arrow is launched, one cannot make it return to the bow.’

The experience is impermanent, the journey continues, the soldier marches forth, the artist makes another mark, the barber shapes another dome, the dog barks for another bone. The journey continues, the beat is followed by one more beat, than another, than another. The man who has a stroke, a seizure, a heart attack, an aneurysm, a man who loses his wife to cancer and the man who is diagnosed with brain cancer continues to get up and take on the world, even if it is weird. The struggle is real, the struggle is an illusion, the struggle is a struggle when it is real. The journey continues, the parents get old in front of your eyes, the sisters, the brothers, the ones you love get older and some of them get sick or may fall and break a bone, life is real, even though it is an illusion, so many questions, so many answers, binary opposition keeps the machine running fine. Eat meat, eat veggies, eat shit, eat whatever it takes to keep you alive, even though it is possible what you eat can help you not live so long. The irony of life is death, and beyond death we just don’t know until that time comes when you find yourself knocking at Heavens door.

And now fotos of work and moments in time of this artist leading up to a new art show called “<3” in Calgary on display at Essentia Mattress store, located 1113 Kensington Rd N.W. and runs all of February with an artist opening on the 14th of February, 2016 between 2-4 pm. All  are welcome, so come on down and celebrate this wonderful thing we call art, free naps available as it is a mattress shop, and they happen to sell really nice organic mattresses that take sleeping and dreaming to a whole other level.

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
