As our world turns technocratic, are we subsequently losing connection to the tactile, the actual, quickly being replaced by ‘Artificial’? I love art, specifically I love paint, I practically eat and breathe it. I do spend some time here, writing these blogs, and sharing my journey with you, however I do not twitter, nor do I place emphasis on maintaining my popularity social index, while jumping on the latest trend. I prefer the underground, working in the studio, not dissimilar to my ancient ancestor cave artists. The one thing I know is that a digital artificial representation will never replace the real thing, paint has an innate glow that comes from the artist and not the glow of the monitor, it simply relies on the reflection of available light and in it’s silence speaks volumes.

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.
