Penang Street Art (The Bun Seller)

art107

As a recent addition to Penang’s famous street arts, the Chinese ‘Pao Seller’ or Bun Seller art mural is painted at the side wall of Wil House, a hotel boutique converted from the old Great Shanghai Dry Cleaning shophouse located along Leith Street, George Town. This art mural depicts an old Chinese man selling the pao (or Chinese buns) from a wooden stall back then with just a fraction of the prices these days.
