'Imagination is more important than knowledge'
Roy Payamal is a stalwart of the Singapore busking scene and a performance artist cum clown-at-heart. With self-taught skills in juggling, fire-eating and acrobatics, he was one of the earliest buskers in Singapore, starting in his late teens, eventually recognized as a street artist for his statue work and installations. He later became a mime and clown-entertainer with sought-after acts in the commercial circuit (like the dangerous and mad CyberFreak) and founded The Substation’s original juggling club. Past artistic work include Zai Kuning’s Metallic Laboratories and Growing Madness, performances at Vincent Leow’s Plastique Kinetic Worms, with Mime Unlimited and ACT3, as well as at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum (Japan) and international busking festivals in Italy, France and Singapore. Now, he is busking with an exciting lit-up show in the international shopping belt of Orchard Road.
