SAME ARTIST BEHIND ICONIC MURALS IN PENANG

Where: Junction of Joo Chiat Terrace and Everitt Road

MRT: Eunos

One of the main attractions for visitors to George Town, Penang, is the lively street art in the heritage city. In fact, a wall mural of a pair of children screaming in glee while riding a bicycle - with a real one propped against the wall - has become an iconic tourism image of the Malaysian city.

That, and many other playful murals in George Town that interact with real-life objects, were done by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic. He has left his mark in Singapore too. A 2013 mural, painted on the side of a private building in Everitt Road, features two children play-fighting with a paint roller and a mop dipped in paint.

His other works here, featuring children sitting in trolleys and peeking out from windows, can be found on the facade of events and marketing company amc asia! singapore's building in Jalan Klapa and Jalan Pisang. They were completed in 2013.
