đź’ Body painting is a unique canvas, it moves, it breathes, and undulates. The connection to the canvas alive demanding the utmost attention and revealing subtle paths for the brush to follow. Body painting is a teacher, the experience breaking down walls while opening up the possibilties of  real intimacy between people. Body painting is empowering, it compliments the beauty of the human body, counter to what society portrays as beautiful. Body painting is a healer and offers a very real and effective tool for dealing with social and humanistic issues that we all face in the world today. 

đź–ŚRecently hälts was invited to gathering to paint human subjects, with his trusty brushes , water and some body paints. It turned into a magical night of interconnectedness, compassion, and kindness. Taking comfort in his subjects the brush came alive, bridging a gap of misunderstanding and revealing truths about this life that often get overlooked, and missed in the hustle and bustle. Taking time to paint these amazing humans made me realize a lot about myself and my fellow humans out there trying to make ther way through life in their own way, no judgements, just doing what they have to do. It made realize I am not alone, and my friends are not alone, we are here for each other, taking comfort in each other, loving each other and sometimes the other way around, we have a lot to learn from one another, so if you think you are alone take comfort in knowing you are not alone, everybody hurts, everybody laughs, everbody loves, and everybody cries. Like my friends REM say, ‘hold on!’.

Most often I put captions with my fotos, this post is a little different, my good friend, and brother from another mother took some time to join me at a recent gathering and took these deeply meaningful, beautiful, breath taking images, all of which he did out of the graciousness of his heart, perhaps I will expand on my words in future posts for now please just enjoy and hold on, you are never alone.

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
