Maui on my mind

Leave a comment

I will always cherish my time on Maui until my last breath on this Earth.

This is a selection of my art and foto collection inspired by the spirit of Maui and all of Hawaii, where I have encountered so many beautiful people, wonderful stories, and music. It is a place where all elements come together in such a magnificent and beautiful way. 20140330-005640.jpg20140330-005655.jpgsand art installation

me and Kamilo jammin out one night, a storyteller of his people, I met him in a parking lot, he was playing his ukelele. Kamilo is a true Polynesian prince, and is both, an uncle and elder, to many of the youth there. He would sit next to the ocean and sing his grandmothers songs to the kids at sunset while the canoes were out on the water, very amazing man with a heart as big as the Big Island of Hawaii. Unfortunately you won’t find his download on the internet, he is a true ambassador of the Aloha spirit.20140330-175256.jpg

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
