His recent art work was ‘Art is Rubbish is Art’ where he display his art pieces at the old Hin Company Bus Depot from 17th Jan till 14 Feb 2014. (sorry for the late information. Tomorrow is the last day.. but at least you can enjoy the pictures here. =P )
I have a quite a time looking for this place but eventually found it. The old bus depot was directly in front of the Grand Continental Hotel (now closed). When I reached, there were already people crowding outside, waiting for the doors to open at 12pm. It was open daily from 12pm to 8pm till 14th Feb 2014. (Not sure what they will do to the wall art after that date though)

Painting on a old coffee canvas…
That’s all? Nope…… more to come. Stay tune with me…..
Still at Chew Jetty, we were strolling along the passageways, passing the clustered wooden houses which were still occupied by the occupants of the Chew Clan communities.
The passageway made of wooden planks. The houses built on wooden stilts.
One of the typical wooden houses at the Chew Jetty.
Colourful sign boards…. so that you do not get lost lol!!!
Wooden houses on stilts. If you look at the picture below on the far left, there used to be an Ernest Zacharevic’s painting; Children in a boat but due to the rain and sunshine… it was slowly disappearing. You can catch this painting in my earlier posting – Street Art around town; of a different kind
Boats tied to the jetty and it was low tide.
A view at the end of the jetty overlooking Penang Bridge from afar.
Walking out from the Chew Jetty…. we were heading to the Gat Lebuh Armenian (Armenian Street Ghaut) road.
Old shops doing metal works… and this one was doing anchors for boats or ships.
Want more? Then dun stop… let’s continue ‘walking’ with me and let’s find those street art. =)
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.
2 little children enjoying riding an old bicycle.
Can you c the old man with his hand?
Tris haw rider waiting for a customer
Kids on a ‘sampan’ near the jetty
A boy on an old motorbike.
A llittle girl ….. haha.. this one looks a little scary especially her eyes. Reminds me of a scary movie but I just couldn’t remember the name of the show.
Lastly … a little boy playing with dinosaur as if it was hit little pet.
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.
