Artist bio

Artist from Oregon now living in Colorado. What can I say, I love nature and all things created by God. My greatest inspiration comes from seeking. Life is difficult, so I take my difficulties to the source, and in the process of learning, I often create something to help me remember... or even share my experience with others. My life has been quite difficult at times, yet who can't relate... I only hope to inspire others to take a similar path... to seek, and to build on that connection with their Creator. And maybe leave something for the rest of us to enjoy. As a street artist, I write "esku" which is Hungarian for "Oath" this comes from a connection I made with the living word, written and spoken. As it says in the Bible... I believe we create our experience in life as we think, and as we speak. I tried to embody that for a long time... now it's just a part of who I am. You can find me on social media etc. by using "truesku" stay true to your words... they stay with you. I enjoy letters and light.. check out my work some time. Peace. -Caleb





Artist Statement

This is a single frame image with no edits. I use a form of long-exposer photography where I leave the eye of the camera open for an extended period of time. This allows me to paint with light, more importantly it allows me to write with light. It's a bit tricky, but I've found a few ways to create my own light sources which give me different effects, styles, and colors of light. In this image I use a tool that allows me to write in a calligraffiti style. In order to accomplish writting with light in a readable form I actually face the camera and write backwards.

How it fits into contest

Hallelujah is my favorite word, it means praise God. I've been down deep in some vallies, and yet I've also climbed some mountains. I see the importance of my struggles, and now as they arise so does my voice with a humble hallelujah. I know it hurts do be down in dirt, yet I know my strength comes when I remember that my God has a plan. A plan that is bigger than my current struggles, and a promise that those experiences are meant for good, meant to glorify God for an unending love, freely given grace, and a multitude of mercy. When I'm above the city and watching the sun rise I say hallelujah, and when its dark I write it in the stars... Hallelujah.
Through my studies and building of a relationship with God the word hallelujah and it's meaning to praise God has empowered me time and time again. In the sense of spiritual warfare it is my end-game move. Praise God and watch your world change. He will arm, and fight for you.
Hallelujah hallelujah hallelujah
