Penang Murals by Ernest Zacharevic
George Town, the capital of Penang Island in Malaysia has been sprawling in its street art glory. Around corners and hidden in alleys is where you can find these creative masterpieces. A very easy trail to walk but if walking your way around Georgetown in the sun doesn’t look appealing then better go get yourself a trishaw or hire a bike.Ernest Zacharevic, a London-trained Lithuanian artist has painted beautiful murals in George Town. His artwork is spread out across Penang’s city centre and is truly pretty impressive. The street art depicts images of everyday life in Malaysia and is combined with real physical objects such as a bicycle, a swing or a motorcycle. Tourists taking photos are simply invited to take part of the scene. Can you resist then? I cannot! Lol.
