early signs of a rebel...

This painting is called ‘early signs of a silent rebel’ (eastywesty). It depicts a modern man walking in the city. This was my early attempt at painting thought patterns. There is an edginess to my work during this period. It was also around this time that I was introduced to the work of Hunter S. Thompson and Ralph Steadman, which had a rather strong influence on me and how I perceived the world around me. It is now in a private collection. Thanks Rick for giving it such a great home.

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.
