Contemporary artist specializing in full spectrum painting, mural, animation and digital hybrid art.

Doodle drawings and in between


When I am not painting or writing I am doodling, always working on new ideas and themes, sometimes I practice writing Tibetan script, or Taoist symbols, which in themselves are an art form, whether it is analog or digital, I do not discriminate, it is all flow, it’s all Mahaloness..
Some of these will end up as cut outs for my next painting, which as you can see is underway. I like to layer and I utilize a bunch of techniques and mediums that I trust, as well as some new spins on technique just to keep things fresh.
Fotomahalonessdoodles and a new painting emerges and the last image my drawings that I am right this second about to cut, I know there’s an easier way, but sometimes the old fashioned way really does give a painting that personal touch, stylistically that is.

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.
