Penang Street Art – Today’s Memories

It feels like quite a long time now since I visited the island of Penang in Malaysia but sometimes memories last forever. These images are a selection of pictures that I took of the amazing Street Art that can be found in the city of George Town.

This is one of my favorites, the children do not hide much of the painting.

The “Skippy For Penang” mural is the biggest of the “101 Lost Kittens” art pieces.

These are painted by ASA, Artists for Stray Animals in George Town, Penang.

This mural can certainly be seen with mixed feelings. A young child balancing herself on top of two window frames. Awesome or creepy…

This is in my opinion the most impressive of all the fantastic murals I saw. I only wish I had taken more pictures of the Indian Boatman from different angles, to emphasize its greatness. But I’m pretty happy with this one anyway.

Kuching Street Art

Kuching is a colorful place and the city is becoming a popular haven for street art.

 Thanks to local arts festivals and even corporate sponsorships, more and more of the town’s blank walls are gradually being taken over by vivid murals. Many of the works portray scenes from local life… …whether it be human or wildlife. Paintings of orangutans are a common sight throughout the city. This one is small……while this one covers an entire wall facade.
