Late night words…..with regards to modern tools and art today…

the tools may have changed over many thousands of years but the drive to make art is what it has has always been, exhilarating. It seems highly probable that artistic practice, whether that be cave painting, street art, studio painting, or sitting with subjects is a form of therapy for the human condition.

This is an animation I made recently using analog and digital methods. I did publish it in a recent post, I wasn’t sure if it was seen by too many as my blog was down briefly, so here we go again, this is a mixture of disciplines (drawing,painting,digital painting accompanied with soundtrack made and produced on a very well used iPad). It is a lifetime of curiosity that led to this moment, now shared with you, thank you.

Note to anyone interested: waves do not stay in one place, and similar to surfing, one has to paddle to the waves to get on a wave, and once on the wave make it count, Kelly Slater knows. While at anytime you can just as easily go over the falls, and hopefully as life progresses you learn how to fall so you can catch a few more beautiful rides…

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.
