Street art around town? You must be thinking of graffiti? Well it is not really graffiti.
I was in Georgetown on the Penang Island a few weeks back and I heard about a guy who did wall paintings. (Guess I was too ignorant bout it) and I took a trip there to do some ‘Wall painting Hunt’
It was done by a guy who came to a Georgetown, Malaysia and did wall painting of children on historical building during the Penang Georgetown Festival. The guy’s name was Ernest Zacharevic, a Lithuanian artist. His painting was really different and it had painting and also old items attached to it …. like a story behind it.
Just have a look at the pictures below.. and you can see what I mean.
A matter of fact… you can rent a bicycle and go around the little street and searching for the wall painting where some can be easily found while some you just have to open your eyes bigger to look for it. …. more like a wall painting hunt. Lol. But dun worry… there is a map which you can get from the Tourist information or the other best is look for the crowd as you will see people queuing up to take pictures next to the painting.
