Exalted Living

Exalted Giving is an exploration of the nature of giving, withholding nothing, giving for the joy of giving, for the truth of it. It is an expression of reverence and appreciation for those who have given to us from this noble place, and for every time we have done the same. Life can be very challenging at times, but when people give to us from friendship, kindness and generosity, their love makes all the difference.

The exquisitely graceful lines of Exalted Giving, flow, blend and fold back into each other, reminiscent of the prayer that “in giving we receive.” Its infinite flow reaches outward, and then returns back unto its source, where it fills with joy and extends itself yet again.

Spar Street is an award-winning painter and sculptor. He specializes in painting large canvases in mixed media, with a high emphasis on sensuality, color, and movement. Before becoming an artist, Street was a skier and entrepreneur. He is best known for his work with the Nobel Foundation and the United Nations.

Street combines abstraction, impressionism, and realism into his works on canvas. His multimedia works notably evoke feelings of energy, warmth, sensuality, power, and beauty, and revolve around mostly spiritual themes. Street also employs heavy layering in many of his abstract paintings. Maui art critic Paul Janes-Brown has this to say about Street’s work: “You have to actually come and see the work to appreciate how great an artist this man is…The excitement of his work is extraordinary. The texture of the work transforms it to another place completely.”
