Mahaloness is curious, what is it that you think about when you read Mahaloness? I’d like to do a Mahaloness blog dedicated to those entires, an interesting little exercise.

A portrait, ink on paper digi remixed of a man I met on the Big Island of Hawaii who reminded me of Neptune, he painted mermaids surfing turtles on immaculate waves

Benny, if you see him in Paia, he makes necklaces, amongst other creative wearables, that are Mahaloness all the way, he finds pieces of glass, and interesting objects that are delivered by Lady Pacifica and carves them into wonderful necklaces and talismans, he also has a beautiful infectious smile.

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.
