Inside the cocoon transformation awaits

fotoMahaloness -inside the studio, much like a cocoon, from the outside it may look as if nothing is going on, when in fact inside a painting is being born. I was wondering today how wonderful it would be if we as humans could stop fighting for a second, lay down our differences, resign from our agendas for just a nano second, and just say hello to one another, wouldn’t that be great. Wishful thinking perhaps, dare to dream and I will leave it at that.

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.
