The purpose of this project is to get an idea of the nature of the artists’ creativity. We go through the historical development of the concept and then focus on the present definition. We have examined concepts as inspiration, intuition, the amateur, and the genius. In our analysis we have made use of the hermeneutic circle. We have done qualitative interviews in order to compare the theories with the experience of the artists themselves. We have concluded that the concept has developed historically, and that it is difficult to get a clear definition of what creativity is today. Some think that creativity today plays the same role as earlier on, although it is expressed differently. We found out that there is a good coherence between our interviews and theories.
