INT. Cave. Night. 

Do you ever wonder where creative expression comes from? As I dive deep into the question I see myself in a cave, putting marks on a rock wall. Here, I am unable to comprehend comprehension, I am completely void of social influences, it is me and a wall, although the wall itself is a veil, which seperates this world from another world. Primordial instincts tell me that I am not alone. I place my hand on the wall becoming instantly connected to this other place and the veil dissolves, it becomes clear what I need to do.

Nepal and moments in creative spacetime.

To my friends in the east
I send you my thoughts and prayers



thank you, and send prayers to Nepal

I am currently making this print available for sale in Canada, and also a couple other options, because I want to send some relief funds to those affected by the recent earthquake in Nepal, the money raised will be going to a friend in Nepal, he is a bit of a mentor to me, and a pillar to his community. Please proceed to my FB hälts art Page : https://www.facebook.com/shanemahaloness if this is something that resonates with you. Mahaloness, hälts

Maui Dreamtime art, made while on a sojourn to Maui in 2012. Most of the materials used were bulding scraps gifted to me by a soul friend named Jim. 

sometimes you just have to let go of the ego and become the unknown



from the 808 spray art remix collection



These artworks were made on repurposed bamboo flooring, and were drawn with a pen I found on the ground at the local coffee shop/office, which I later displayed in a lawn art show happening , when I get a chance I’ll try to dig up a few fotos from the archives.



an offering to the wind spirit



made on repurposed redwood that was well on its way to the local dump, so maybe this is dump art , which gves me an idea, a dump art show…



mural prep, key to letting the magic happen

full spectrum consciousness portal mural

Guided Imagination

a form of imagination that goes beyond what we normally understand by the word: in the anthropologist Anna-Leena Siikala’s phrase, it consists in ‘setting aside the critical faculty and allowing emotions, fantasies and images to surface into awareness’.  -David Lewis-Williams ‘The Mind in the Cave’ p.134-35 c.2002 Thames & Hudson Ltd. London

Some of my murals are buried under layers of paint. This particular mural is intended to be a portal for achieving sensations and expereinces of the other world. It is also acts as a protective force feild that keeps trickster spirits away.
