It was international surf day yesterday, which I missed because I am in it heavy with the creative process as I near an art exhibition. The nerves are thin right now as I burn the midnight oil working on paintings, wearable art and all the things to do that come with doing a show. To be honest I feel as if I have been sitting in a cave for an indefinite amount of time meditating and this has all been a dream. If it is a dream than may it never end. As my ‘Lost Art’ exhibit/experience comes near there is much to do, on that note I leave you with a set of three, magic it is.

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.
