Cica3Art has no bounds or form. It lives and thrives in you young Amsterdam-born dynamite. It commands attention and refuses to be silenced. It changes form and representation as he switches between his roles as a son, man, poet, producer and more. Art transcends common grounds to tap onto uncommon territory.
 
Art knows his name and subtly calls him Cicatrixx! You may be excused for calling him expressive and unique.
 
Dear world: here's his story.
In one sentence, who is Cicatrixx?
Cicatrixx is a 22 year old Amsterdam-born poet, graphics artist, recording artist, music producer and social activist signed to Regime Records, who's spent his life growing up across Asia and Africa and settled in Cape Town in 2005.
 
Great stuff! Please tell us a little bit more about you.
In one word: I'm a poet. However, I don't keep my words contained within the scope of a mere page. I assemble and project my messages through written poetry, philosophical articles, freestyle rap, music, graphics and more. Anything that may assist me in conveying my cause, I use. 
 
Over the years, I've gathered over 65,000 fans on social media, accounting for 2.5 million song plays, and I've just recently launched Regime Records, an urban-orientated artist development firm / independent record label. 
 
As for performances, there's been a couple. My most memorable show so far being at Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens for 4,500 people with international blues singer, Jimmy Thomas, who's known for working with the likes of Ike and Tina Turner. That show in particular was amazing! At the start, some folks in the crowd were whining when they heard a rapper would come on, but once they heard how well the rap could gel with the blues, they went completely berserk. Picture 60 year-old bra-less women with oversized T-shirts jumping in the front row... Shocker, isn't it? (laughs) It perfectly illustrates how universal music can be when no boundaries are set!
Can you please tell your fans what you have been up to and/or what's next?
Last year I released my mainstream debut single, "So Bad", which features popular South African pop singer, Chad Saaiman. Since then, I've been on numerous radio shows, TV shows, blogs and printed magazines, but the time to really pick up pace and show the world who I am as a person, arrived with the launch of my record label, Regime Records, with which we released our debut EP, "Regime Radio 1: Join The Rise", half-way August, which features myself plus all our current main artists. The EP is available as free download by clicking here.
 
One of the highlights in my career so far has definitely been spending time in studio with Young Guru. Young Guru engineered 11 out of 12 Jay-Z albums, and during his visit to SAE Cape Town, I was blessed enough to spend a couple hours with him and learn some of his tricks.
 
What's to come? In a nutshell: lots. We've been in various discussions with Penagon, a US based record label founded by Kurupt from Snoop Dogg's 'Tha Dogg Pound' crew, as well as with GMG Entertainment, another US based record label founded by multi-platinum rapper Twista. We're working on securing some nice big collaborations to show the world that though still developing, the SA music industry and its artists are more than capable of competing with those money-gobbling b*st*rds overseas. (grins) 
 
But alas, life always has a way of throwing curve balls and forcing one to dodge. We'll see what life has in store for me. In the mean time, feel free to keep your fingers crossed and help me root for myself! (grins and winks)
How do you find a balance between what you do and who you are?
Simple - what I do IS who I am. I strongly believe in following my heart in all I do, due to one's actions building one's character. People always talk about how they have to "find themselves". I say it's nonsense. Life isn't about finding yourself - it's about creating yourself. With this in mind, what's more logical than to focus on doing what you feel helps you develop into whom and what you wish to be? I feel strongly against hypocrites and see to it that I don't do things against my morals, allowing what I do and who I am to balance naturally.
We celebrate love. Do you think true love exists? If so, Who/what/where is it?
A better question would be: could we as humans exist without love? Whatever we may believe God to be, the Bible tells us "God is Love". Added to that, the original Old Testament was written in Hebrew, which didn't make use of vowels and wrote God's name as "JHWH" - pronounce this. It's the sound of a breath. If God is love, and His Name originally recreated the sound of a breath, then does that not entail that love exists in each breath we release, and that love is the basic action necessary for life to continue?
 
As for love itself, I can't state what it is. If it was meant to be explained, then instead of a heart, we'd have a pen and page within our chest's cavity.
 
Though still young, I've been blessed to have experienced the most amazing love already, during a four year relationship for which I went as far to convert religions, cause havoc within my family, and much, much more. When thinking back, I can't help but think what a beauty of a film our story would make. Though we're not together any more due to me leaving the religion and family exerting immense pressure onto her, she's shown me that true love exists, and more importantly, what true love entails - something which some people go a lifetime without - and for that, she'll always carry my gratitude along with a piece of me.
Do you think there is still a place for marriage in this day-and-age?
Yes, as long as there's people crazy enough to fall in love, there will be people crazy enough to get married. The divorce statistics of this "day-and-age" obviously play a role in decision making for realists, but at the end of the day, taking risks is what love's all about. The more the odds are stacked against you during battle, the sweeter the victory that follows. Call me old fashioned, even for a mere 22 year-old, but to me, marriage is one of the few special occasions in life that people still view as beautiful as it actually is. Besides, no-one ever grew stronger by playing safe.
 
Do you have a message to Wedding Anthem?
Yep. Here's an addition to your "quotes and sayings" section:
"To love is to live, but to live is to die, so to truly love, you must risk your life" - Cicatrixx
 
[Note from Wedding Anthem: thanks for the love quote. We have added it. Click here to view :) ]
 
Anything else on your mind?
I believe what mostly ruins relationships is imbalance between mind and heart. It is for a reason that Buddha taught that unity of heart and mind must be achieved before true happiness can be obtained. We must remember, the mind speaks, but the heart whispers. Therefore we can always hear the mind, but must listen to the heart. Granted, giving your heart the time necessary to plough through your mind's out-cries during trials may be challenging, but give it time. Remember, a river beats a mountain not by strength, but by perseverance.

Its like you learn my thoughts! You seem to know so much about this, such as you
wrote the book in it or something. I think that you just could do with a few p.c.
to drive the message home a bit, however instead of that, that is wonderful blog.
A great read. I'll certainly be back.
