In this palace of glass, steel and concrete I roam, a bubble in the universe, where past meets present meets future. What makes us reach for the sky? What drives the city to constantly want to expand, what is the draw, the appeal of this environment?  My own interaction with the downtown is mostly task oriented, with the occasional exploratory walk or skate, depending on the weather, so as to observe the landscape and the rhythm of it’s occupants. Mostly I am fascinated with the up, looking up, it is both a marvel to behold, while also somewhat perplexing.

I have more words to write, more thoughts to share however I am going to keep this one short and sweet as I am working on a proposal for an art residency at the moment, it is currently taking most of my time and energy. The images gathered here are an ongoing look at the urban environment, always in flux and a monuments of the past, present and the future. Where is it all going, and and are we prepared to adapt to the ever changes we are seeing in our lifetime. More on that when I return for now some images to go with words.

I have been working on this painting for a month or so,  it has transformed into a new idea, however a continuation of a story, the one that got away.

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
