Penang’s capital, George Town has always been a constant enticement for drawing both international and local visitors. Voted the most live-able city in Malaysia, the town was also together with Malacca declared a UNESCO site in 2008. Renowned for its architecture, food and art, George Town was most definitely one of my favourite places recently visited in Asia. My love and affection for this place was most likely cemented with its now acclaimed street art, which also acts as a social and political commentary for the area and country. Although varying artists have used the city walls for their canvas I was particularly drawn to Lithuanian native, Ernest Zacharevic works. Now based in Penang, Zacharevic’s works dominate and span across the city and can also be found in Kuala Lumpur, Petaling Jaya, Johor Baru, Singapore and Europe. Check out more of Zacharevic’s work here. Other artist include Tang Yeok Kang, Natthaton Muangkliang, Louise Low, Simon Tan and Louis Gan.
