A bug’s perspective

Leave a comment

Leave it to the bug family to deliver a message that you are on the right track. I have often observed that the bugs love my art, and when they show up I wonder what they think, do they think, or feel, or am I to believe that we as humans know for a fact, based on science this, or data that, that we know that bugs simply do not think, or perhaps they are not of human worthiness, and so on. Often I hear people describe bugs using adjectives such as ‘gross’ or ‘disgusting’, this seemingly based on past exoereince. Well perhaps there is another side to our little friends that deserves some attention, and here on Mahaloness I enjoy providing a frame for my little friends to finally express what they have been wanting to say for so long.

Be kind to the bugs.

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.
