Feature Presentation

In the meantime and in between time hälts makes art, and sometimes works on a film set as grip helping out with sweet dolly moves with occasional sips of coffee. The art lately has been all about the cardboard, taking boxes previously used for shipping art and turning that into art. Interestingly enough the process is quite satisfying and surprisingly cost effective. There is a long tradition of painting on cardboard, especially when times have been tough, wartime, Great Depression, and these types of life occurrences have forced artists to be resourceful, and that’s all right. Sometimes less is more, it makes you appreciate the small things in life instead of the Guam nfilly of treating everything as expendable, and putting the brake on a throw away society, because Earth is worth it, it is our only home and home to many things, not just human, which is something that gets forgotten in the daily grind of the hustle and bustle.

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
