Ah Quee Street

Ah Quee Street (Lebuh Ah Quee), is an old street in George Town which is named after Kapitan China Chung Keng Kwee. An influential figure during his time, Kapitan Chung Keng Kwee (also known as ‘Ah Kwee’, hence the street name) presented this street to the local municipality after having demolished his shophouses to make way for the road.

A few murals can be found on the ancient walls of the street such as the popular one by Ernest Zachaveric as shown below;

Penang Street Art (The Lego Stickers)

This is not a painting but rather large paper printouts pasted on the wall of an alley at Ah Quee Street. This Lego mural was originally drawn by Ernest Zacharevic in Johor but due to a controversy surrounding it, the mural was removed by the local authority there. Someone has found a way to replicate the mural here in George Town.
