George Town, Penang, Malaysia

25 Apr

I love art, especially modern art, and especially when I can see it for free. Street art is thus the ultimate art experience to me, and I love when town councils are smart enough to understand its value instead of discard it as ‘graffiti’ and paint some bad pastel color paint on top of it.

George Town understood this at best, embracing street art and this city’s history making the former speaking about the latter, or about any unique characteristics of this UNESCO town site.
So one day me and Alle set off to discover all of that the city’s walls had to offer us, and here are a few of my favorites!
The projects includes a total of 52 sculptures that serve as a humorous connecting point between the city’s history and its landmarks, with its people’s daily lives nowadays.
Isn’t it an original way of describing a town’s most unique facades? I just loved walking through history in such a modern way.
Just as much I also loved Ernest Zacharevic’s hand painted murals. They were interactive, engaging and thought-provoking, thanks to the Lithuanian artist’s imagination as well as the unique setting in which the murals become alive.
