Street Art In George Town


Penang’s street art movement began in 2012 when Ukranian artist Ernest Zacharevic was commissioned by the Penang Tourist Board to create 6 wall murals for the George Town Festival. Zacharevic’s innovative designs made clever use of their historic locations with the subject matter of the murals relating closely to local life. For example, his decision to paint a picture of a local boy in boat at the historic Chew Jetty is very effective. Zacharevic’s work set a trend and the historic centre of George Town is now covered in great artwork which is relevant to the island and the people who live there.

  • I Want Pau!: A mural by Malaysian artist W K Setor
  • ‘Kung Fu Girl’ : A 20 foot high mural on Armenia Street
  • ‘Three Young Ladies’: A small but beautiful mural of Indian, Chinese and Malay girls all dressed in traditional Hokkien Chinese outfits symbolising the close connection between the different ethnic groups on Penang Island on Soo Hong Lane.

It is also worth mentioned the municipal government own contribution to Penang’s street art movement commissioning 52 attractive cast iron street signs telling the story of different locations around the city using amusing cartoon style images, and helpful information in English, both created from iron rods. These signs are located all over the historic old town area in George Town.
