Gonzo style self portrait I painted way back in my earlier days. This painting I called ‘Easty Westy’. I was heavy into reading about eastern philosophy and very much gonzo at the time, even though my experience had been predominately western. This painting went into my first solo show called ‘Soulspace’ (2006) a video I put together for my first solo show called Soulspace
It was a nerve wracking experience as it was my first solo show in a gallery, before this I really had not painted since high school. I had nine months to prepare the show. I completely surprised myself. The painting now resides in my friend Ricks place, he has one of the best Calgary contemporary art collections going, I am pretty honored to be hanging with the cream of the crop.
Mahalonessfoto – the painting hanging at Ricks and a foto of the view where my loving parents live, and a place I like to be (a future blog entry no doubt)
Peace, happiness and mahaloness to you all.

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.
