The Biological, Emotional, and Spiritual Act of Creativity

On my Art is Power Europe Tour, I visited 30-year Hip-Hop Veteran, Kapi One in Barcelona, Spain. Kapi’s life as an artist began as a break dancer in the mid 80s and expanded into visual art, music, and the spoken word. To hear him speak is like listening to a man who has lived multiple lifetimes and has reflected on every moment. When I asked him why the arts have been such a big part of his life, he answered,

“To be human means also some kind of spirit thing, or emotion thing, not only the biological part. I realized at some point that creativity is the tool that emotion uses to grow and exist. When we don’t do creativity, we are killing part of ourselves, the health. It’s like not drinking water or something.”
