Maui Spirit Murals

Leave a comment

These are what I would call Maui spirit murals. I made these in succession of one another over a period of 2 months while on a sojourn to Maui. How they came to be is a little diffucult to explain as I had not planned to do any murals while I was there, so for all intensive purposes they were the workings of ‘the Universe’. Certain things just aligned that I could not have planned for, doorways opened and I walked through them.

Hookipa spirit mural c.2012, painted at night during a new moon, it was pitch black and there were some very strange sounds coming form thr ocean that night, one of the most exhilirating painting experiences of my life. This mural lasted one day before being painted over, life is impermanent.

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.
