    Flashbang organisers say unfamiliarity with artists was behind controversy

    Organisers for Flashbang say the recent controversy about their invitation to musicians and buskers to perform at their event for exposure was due to their unfamiliarity with engaging artists. Earlier this month, musician Amanda Tee posted on Facebook an email she received from Invade inviting her to perform at Flashbang, Singapore’s first and largest creative retail playground in Orchard Road. In spite of the online flak from musicians such as Tee and Sam Driscoll, organisers have managed to fill all the slots for their paid performances and have also invited professional emcees to host their open mic performances.

    While clay artist Jocelyn Teo has created works for local celebrities such as Sugie Phua and Sylvester Sim, the 30-year-old never imagined that she would one day receive an email query from the manager of international R&B star John Legend. The clay artist of eight years then had to contain her excitement before her six-minute FaceTime call with the “All of Me” singer. The project was a birthday gift for Legend’s model wife Chrissy Teigen, and it required Teo to create 15 miniature food sculptures replicating the dishes from Teigen’s cookbook “Cravings”.
