Alliance Française de Penang

On 26 September, The Alliance Française de Penang in George Town unveiled its 20 meter art mural called Paris/Penang which features major landmarks (such as the Eiffel Tower, Penang Hill, etc) in Paris and Penang that were then linked together via the Penang Bridge. The art work was created by local artist Elan Hasyim and it was painted in a way to portray the relations between the two cities.

This large mural can be found on the wall of the building of The Alliance Française de Penang, which is located at Jalan Phuah Hin Leong, George Town. The Alliance Française de Penang is a unique association and a language center in Penang that aims to promote both French language and culture all around the world.
