Sixth Cents

Leave a comment

Yesterday I took part in an art battle. It was a in interesting time, my theme, the sixth sense, which quite frankly we don’t know a lot about, and the actual few that do are rare indeed. That said I think I was a kid I was in perpetual sixth sense, all the time, letting things slide off and always in a world that I truly created as opposed to the one I am forced to accept as an adult, and by that I mean the daily opinion survey and freedom less choice, partly due to the times of being a slave to the man. So what does it all mean, I don’t know, I do know that I want to live my life doing what it is I love, while working the occasional job to keep it going when the art I create doesn’t quite support me. I have always maintained that hard work pays off, as I get older I am not so sure if that’s true, I am starting to think that there is benefit to going back to a cold like mentality, a time when corruption wasn’t even a word I knew, let alone heard about, the only thing that mattered was making sure to take in as much as I could, have as much fun as possible, and soak in each and every moment, and run free with my friend curiosity.
FotoMahaloness last nights battle scene the chair and the table were back alleyway finds, perfect for the night ahead. Harold and Darcy rocked the show, gracefully of course, and art history was again made here in Calgary.

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.
