Street Art of George Town

posted in: PHOTOS | 0

One of the nicest cities in Southeast Asia, George Town, is a place full of history. The Portuguese, British, Chinese, Malay and Indian cultures mix here together with modern street art. In 2012 the Penang Municipal Council commissioned Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic to create an art project called ‘Mirrors George Town‘. Ernest’s large murals depict children in everyday scenes using objects such as chairs, swings and bikes. Nowadays two different types of street art can be seen around the city:  murals (like Zacharevic’s), and cartoons with messages made of metal rods. Both children and cats are amongst the favorite motifs displayed in George Town. The latter adds an additional layer of charm to this already charming Malaysian city.
