That first touch (this message powered by Mother Earth)

There is noting quite like the feeling I get when that first touch of paint hits next surface.
fotoMahaloness – Mahaloness takes on a behemoth, in this case a sea container, in temperatures exceeding 30 degrees celsius,thats pushing a 100 for my American friends, and mosquitoes in the thousands, swarming my head, dive bombing my eyeballs, looking for that next meal. Does this stop Mahaloness, no, it is all part of the experience, and this one has already proven to be quite the beast. All this following a flood that saw myself and Agent R evacuated from our home, a 100 year flood a that. As the climate changes due to ‘whatever you want to believe’, I begin to feel a far greater sense of purpose in making art for our time and for my people.

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.
