New Style


Paint is my choice of expression I recently returned from a sojourn to Maui, where I began to explore different techniques, specifically stencil art, which took on a collage like feel. Change is inevitable, I try not to fight with it too much, the one thing I have learned is that as things change patience becomes an important ally. Change can equate to uncertainty, in that patterns are being adjusted, or new methods are adopted, and this keeps my work fresh, exciting and somewhat unpredictable.

I painted for a month straight next to a fellow who built an ohana, a small family guest house, it is always interesting to work alongside other trades, it offers new insight into my work and I think it also influences their work too, I think the praying mantis agrees:) Mahaloness to Maui!

Mahaloness is an art blog documenting the inner spirit and artist journey of Shane Haltman, also referred to as 'hälts'. He lives, breathes and makes art in Canada. Hälts often travels to remote and exotic locations to produce community spirit murals and paintings using available materials. He is unconventional in his approach to art and chooses unique projects and sometimes they choose him. He is known for guerrilla lawn art shows, painting helmet art for a Canadian Olympic Athlete, and once painted a magic bus out of this world. Mostly he is human as anyone else, however very driven and disciplined with respect to his artistic practice. He has experience working with the bereaved and helping people who are experiencing, or who have experienced trauma in their lives. He also enjoys working with the youth and passing on his wisdom, usually in the form of art jams. Hälts is a full spectrum artist, living and breathing art, as a daily practice, in this mixed up beautiful world.
