HLG is the mononymous spiritual alias for Swedenís multifarious artist Martin Helge, currently residing in Berlin. His artistic expression is baptized in the name of Reversed Sami Magickal Dreamcatching and has many variables and personalities. It is a puzzle without words, a pyramid without angles and a crooked straight line. He is influenced by sublime alchemy, reversed psychology, abstract mental images, fluent semi-nomadic thoughts and subconscious force fields. Improvisation, rightful wrong-doing and mega productiveness , this is something he thrives on.
The power of thinking out loud and speaking without words; the equally electric and eclectic supernatural force of just being climactic and smart; the constant pushing and pulling of thinking about doing vs not doing is the strongest motivation behind his art.
He specializes in drawings, but sometimes he paints or prints. He also enjoys the mental bending of the Self that comes from free-form chaotic collaborations with other like minded artists, but simultaneously also seeks to fill all the negative space in space, as well as the holes in time, by closely intertwining his imagery with the darker aspects of the bright side of life in darkness.
