UNLEASHING YOUR GENIUS (MUSIC & ARTS)

'Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.’
We all have genius within us. Yet knowing you have a genius within doesn't make picking up a guitar or a paintbrush any easier. On the contrary, if we believe that "art" is for "artists" only, we live only as an observer and dreamer.

On Tuesday night, you'll hear how 2 artists found their way to let art into their lives. Two unique stories of self-expression through music, photography, and storytelling. Both will share their art and their story, and we promise you’ll leave inspired to unleash your own genius.

You also have a chance to perform at the open mic and share your genius with a warm and supportive crowd! A poem, a song, a cover of your favorite tune… book your open mic spot here:

Join us for a shot of creative inspiration, for soulful conversations with old and new friends over drinks, and for a night that’ll inspire you to unleash your own genius! Bring friends, or come alone and meet a new crowd to mingle with!


FEATURING/ // /

Ivan Tashveer:

At 19, Ivan formed his band, Edge of Fire, and performed as lead singer. Their first ever public performance was at a competition, where they performed an original song. They snagged 3rd place, moving to grand national finals to compete amongst 10 bands. It was after that, when Jason Lo, a DJ at HitsFM, picked it up and before they knew it, they became a sensation with their original hit “Whole Again”, topping Malaysian English Charts Top 10 at #1 for 1-2 months. Ivan also performed in front former prime ministers of Malaysia and also entered Rockstar Supernova, a reality show of rock celebrities seeking talent, and landed 3rd of 1000 people in Malaysia.

Join us to hear how his “why” of singing has progressed from back then to now, where he hopes to inspire people to use their talents as a tool to make a difference in our world.

Don Michael de Leon:

Happyfingers is the artistic persona of Don Michael Acelar De Leon, an emerging portraitist originally from Manila, Philippines, but now living and taking portraits in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

From fiddling aimlessly at flowers and kittens with a point and shoot camera over three years ago, Happyfingers has found a niche for photographing women in their various states of self - sharing a moment of solitude over coffee, experimenting with forward fashion concents in streets and public venues, and unguarded moments of intimacy as they celebrate their femininity through his lens. While he considers himself a “very normal” portraitist, Happyfingers has captured the attention of a growing online audience, with over 16,000 followers on facebook and instagram combined; he has also been noted as one of Status Magazine’s “10 Fashion Photographers We Have Our Eye On.” In the digital and print space, Happyfingers has been published by Nextdoormodel Magazine (Italy), Yume Magazine (Australia), and We Shoot Souls (Brunei); and has done a variety of lookbook and season campaigns for Neon Island, ChaTime, Cafe Mary Grace, Snapsacks, Cote et Ciel, Project Pie, among other emerging and established brands.

Apart from portraits, Happyfingers is also a familiar face in the local KL open mic circuit, having performed in venues such as Calavera, Pisco, Merdekarya, Barlai, The Rougeur, and headlined shows in Gaslight and The Bee. In the advertising world, Happyfingers represents Grey Worldwide as a Regional Associate Brand Director for its Global Business Unit (ASEAN-ANZ-India).
