Humanitou shines light on humanness and creativity through one-on-one conversations with artists and other all-around amazing humans. Humanitou founder and creator, Adam Williams, and guests explore the full range of the human experience.
Gregg, 44, is a member of the Pyramid Lake Paiute tribe with origins in what is now known as Nevada. Because his painting, performance art and filmmaking communicate through that personal lens on life, his art teems with the oft-dismissed Native perspective.
Yves is a self-described introvert, albeit one who performs with The Luddites, a dance troupe in Colorado Springs. She also is the unintentional spark of a social media experiment born of her immense curiosity.
Charles H. Rockey died on June 16, at 87 years of age. Known affectionately as “Rockey” around the town in which he loved to live for nearly a half-century, Manitou Springs, Colo., the painter, poet and former art teacher is remembered by generations of former students and adoring locals.
Jeff Harms is an artist who deals in words and wit. We talked about money, art, war, and what Jeff has observed as a universal truth about humanity while living much of the past 22 years aboard ships.
Ramón Aguirre’s paintings express his interest in mortality and death as a matter of life. In conversation he’s easy-going and generous, and laughs often. We sat down to talk in Ramón’s above-garage studio, where he paints and otherwise creates, where philosophy books and analog cameras he still uses are within reach.
Nico, 25, works as a community organizer, poet, publisher, and spoken word performance artist who rattles cages, sparks laughs and loves to write about love. Among other things.
When Chris C. Bowden, a photographer and videographer, chanced upon Rockey sitting in his studio doorway in 2015, he struck up a conversation with the artist. Chris, now 43, recently recounted the experience of meeting Rockey and making a five-minute short film, “C.H. Rockey."
Jasmine, 25, works full-tilt within the creative life. As a full-time henna artist at La Henna Boheme in downtown Manitou Springs. As a contemporary artist with an interdisciplinary vision that moves across performance, installation, sculpture and writing. And as a voice that is active and strong in the regional arts community.
By his own recognition, Vincent Coleman is going through a lot of changes. He’s making connections. He’s growing, as an artist and a human being. He sees it happening. Feels it.
Coming up on his 65th birthday this month, Bryant sat down with Humanitou. He shares how he came to live and play improvisationally, about his musical influences and a day working alongside one of them.
