Passing through Lebuh Cannon where it intersects with Lebuh Armenian. Lebuh Armenian is where you can find lots of street art. You can read on my earlier postings; Street Art around town; of a different kind, A walk in Georgetown Heritage Area and Malaysia – Georgetown; Continuation search for Street Art

This is the intersection of Lebuh Cannon and Lebuh Armenian.

After zipping out from Lebuh Cannon, we headed on Lebuh Carnarvon back to the finishing line which is about another 1km.

Cute metal art showing the rickshaw ….

I was walking along Lebuh Pantai from Lebuh Armenian, I saw this painting  on the wall of the shops on the side of the Khoo Kongsi; cats carrying lanterns.

20130810-231045.jpg

Exploring around.. hidden among the small alley at Ah Quee Street, I saw this mural painting of ‘Our Art is Dying’ by an unknown street  artist.

20130810-231054.jpg

Another mural painting ‘The Real Bruce Lee Would Never Do This’ also at Ah Quee Street is part of the 101 Lost Kittens art project.

More metal art sculpture to enjoy……

This is my 2nd time walking on Lebuh Armenian on foot and each time I come, I find and see different things.

A typical old shop house. Inside, an old man making a rattan chair by hand. This is something you do not see much anymore.

20130810-230804.jpg

Another metal art on the outside wall of a old heritage building.

20130810-230812.jpg

yeah…. someone had a spark of idea to paint Minions on a divider and yes.. it caught a  lot of attention. =)

20130810-230820.jpg

An old bicycle shop…. along Lebuh Armenian.

20130810-230837.jpg

Magic show……. on the shuttle of a old shop.

20130810-230845.jpg

Low cost advertising that caught my attention.

20130810-230856.jpg

At the end of the street.

20130810-230908.jpg

Welcome back. Sorry for the slight detour on this. If you missed  my earlier write , here’s the link; Malaysia – Georgetown; The continuation search for Street Art (3)

Moving on…. still at Lebuh Armenian, there are a lot of metal art sculpture as seen below at the arches of the shops.

Each of them has their little story…..

20130810-230548.jpg

20130810-230557.jpg

Wall Art painting on the beam of  the old shops…

20130810-230605.jpg

Look at the queue .. people waiting to take a shot of the street of the the brother and sister on a bicycle wall painting.

20130810-230613.jpg

One of the old shops with old antique stuff… very quaint place to see all the old memorabilia.

20130810-230626.jpg

Smart idea.. to repair the chair with colourful cloth rags.

20130810-230637.jpg

.. another cat on the wall…

20130810-230646.jpg

… the journey continues.  Remember to follow me on this search… as there is more.

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.

20130810-230102.jpg

One of the typical wooden houses at the Chew Jetty.

20130810-230107.jpg

Colourful sign boards…. so that you do not get lost lol!!!

20130810-230113.jpg

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

20130810-230121.jpg

Boats tied to the jetty and it was low tide.

20130810-230128.jpg

A view at the end of the jetty overlooking Penang Bridge from afar.

20130810-230141.jpg

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.

20130810-230151.jpg

Want more? Then dun stop… let’s continue ‘walking’ with me and let’s find those street art. =)
