Street Arts and Chow Jetty | Penang Island

The Lithuanian-born artist had  beautiful wall painting and welded iron wall caricatures all over Georgetown area are left as wonderful souvenirs to Malaysians. The project is funded by George Town Festival while the paints were sponsored by a paint company, Murobond. The hit of finding the artworks had become one of our activities during our visits in Penang.

Cannon Hole @ Lebuh Cannon

Reaching Up @ Cannon Street

"This Old Man" Mural @ Armenian Street

Tua Pek Kong Hneoh Grand Float Procession in the year of Tiger @ Lebuh Armenian

Little Children on a Bicycle @ Armenian Street

This should be local's street art.

Boy on a Bike @ Ah Quee Street  ; it was actually a kid with pet dinosaur chasing a kid on a motorcylist.

Children Playing Basketball @ Chulia Street Ghaut

Children On A Swing at Step By Step Lane off Chulia Street Ghaut

Searching for artwork under hot sun was really tiring and we headed to have ice-cream to reduce the heat before going to Chow Jetty for the final mural: “Children in a Boat"

We were sad to find that the wall painting “Children in a Boat" was not in a good condition where the children faces were hardly seen.

There are plentiful street arts/murals and I shall revisit penang to hunt for the 101 Lost Kittens, minions and Secret Gardens of Earthly Delights.By the way, most of the wall paintings/ murals were not given name, the names in above post was referred to www.onlypenang.com.
