Big Ha

This is an image of my mural art on a magic bus, it represents Big Ha, fashioned after a Chief in the Siksika Nation (near Cluny Alberta) who knew my grandfather. They shared a mutual respect for one another and enjoyed hunting and trading goods with each other. I never had the chance to meet my grandfather, yet somehow I ended up with his paintbrushes and a palette knife, which I use to this day.

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.
