Wall art in Malaysia

And nowadays I saw the mural in creative way…or I should call it as wall art

Penang Wall Art Street
Tho I have been several times to Penang, never had a chance to visit the wall art (even dh few time pi Penang, baru 2 kali je makan pasembor kat padang kota lama tu)

The location is scattered. I saw from this link Penang have welded iron wall caricatures besides the famous street art by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic

Directions : As you come along Jalan Dato Onn Jaafar (Cockman Street) towards Super Kinta/UTC’s direction, you will reach a crossroad with traffic lights. This is the junction that will lead you to Ipoh Old Town if you turn LEFT into Jalan Sultan Iskandar (Hugh Low Street). Just before you reach the traffic lights, look LEFT and you will see the back alley with the first painting; the Lion Dance.

Johor wall art

The controversial graffiti art by Ernest Zacharevic. It has been removed, but from here someone has replicate the mural in George Town  

Seems that most of the wall art ada motorsikal, kereta atau basikal kan?
