Creator

2 Comments

Began a new project just recently, a mural installation called “Creator’ based on a vision that sparked my imagination. The process is a lot of work, a lot of hustle and bustle, late nights, mixing paints, drawing, cleaning, running, music, drink water, look, step back, never look back, eat, drink, spray, brush, clean, sleep when the legs turn to jello…just one more session, okay and maybe another. This is the thing that makes me happy, I put a lot of care an attention into my murals, some take 3 months to do, some a day or two, it just all depends on mood, constitution, atmosphere, nerve, intuition, flow, and juice. When these elements are aligned it is magic in its purest form, and so far this project is all of the above. It is dedicated to a friend named Scotty who moved onto the next life and whose words of encouragement helped me to carry on, Eddie and Clyde Aikau (so inspiring), all other surfers and ocean lovers, and to people of Earth, as we all are here because Creator, who ever that is to you, made this existence and this planet, and the Cosmos and what a tremendous gift it is to be able to be a part of it all. Many thanks to New Age Calgary, Rebecca, Nicole, my family, Yvan, John, Guy, Mark, Leigh (who lent a projector, very cool and fun), Sunnyside Art Supply, the Roasterie, Sunnyside Market and all the folks who have contributed in one way or another, couldn’t do it without your help, love, food, coffee, smile, hug, laugh, thumbs up, and positivity. More coming soon my friends, if there is any questions or comments please let me know and I will do my best to get back to you. Until than I have a few more sessions on this beauty, and I am excited to say that I am making a movie which I will hopefully be completed sometime in March, I will post more on that soon. I leave you with some pictures and a few more words.

Author: hälts

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.

  1. I congratulate you on this energetic artwork that illuminates for me the fundamental relationship between energy, consciousness, and the gift of creation.

    • Thank you for such a thoughtful and beautiful comment, this mural was slow cooking in my brain for a while, I am happy with how it came to life. In Buddhism there is the 3 jewels (the Buddha, Dharma, Sangha), I would say art has three jewels as well: energy, consciousness, and the gift of creation. Have a great day!
