The artist path is one of patience, perseverence, and constant practice. Throughout the journey there will be experienes, countless experiments, endless information and encounters that adjust your perception of the world. This will inevitably end up in your work, which depending in the person comes with a certain lag time between effect and response. This of course may be slightly altered from one to person to the next, there are many factors such as environment, social economic and political climate, passion, endurance, resolve and so on. For this artist the journey and the destination are one and same, they are always changing and impermanent, this can be both a blessing and a challenge, knowing this there is nothing to hold onto, no ‘mistakes’…the trick is to remember this when things go sideways.

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.
