Wodaabe Dreamtime

Leave a comment

This painting was inspired by Werner Herzog’s film ‘Herdsmen of the Sun’ (1989) a documentary film that sheds light on the Saharan nomadic tribe called the ‘Wodaabe’. This painting is an example of what I call a paintamentary, although modern cave painting also fits nicely. Certain films and the cinematic experience have opened my mind up to new ideas and possibilities, and Werner is one of those people I would really love to meet and really thank him for doing the good work.

Signed Limited edition Fine Art prints are available in a variety of options and are available upon request. I have tried a few different online art gallery resources in the last few years, such as Saatchi online art where you can find more of my art and order prints. I have mixed feelings about online galleries, although Saatchi does offer a very user friendly experience and if anything you can see more art, so win win. I leave that up to you to decide. I am a one man micro business, with a quality versus quantity approach, most of my effort goes into producing work, that is what I love to do. Thank you.

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
