2 Taras

The healing associated with the act of witnessing art is an area of research I am very interested in.

-the following is 2 white Taras I painted in succession to one another for art patrons, although I may be far from the conventional idea of a ‘Buddhist’ nor do I presume to be an overtly religious person, I do believe this imagery, inspired by my friend Romio Shrestha (Master Tibetan Thangka painter) has similar vibrational qualities as the sound of ‘Aum’ and other Buddhist meditation mantras. This is not a new idea, artists such as Mark Rothko and Bryce Marden have had similar ideas in terms of art’s capacity to heal, this is a pathway I find myself going with.

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.
