The area map of Raja Uda Road (or Jalan Raja Uda). Raja Uda is one of the major roads of Butterworth, Penang and is popular for the many eateries, shops and houses lining along the long road.
Recently, the road is also the host to several large street art murals;
Giant Abstract Mural by Sabek
Abstract Patterned Butterfly by Nafir
The Man and the Turtles by Martin Ron.

The Penang Botanic Gardens is also the home to some of the oldest trees on the island.
This rather large abstract mural was painted by Sabek, a Spanish artist during the Different Strokes street art exhibition period. It can be easily seen at the side wall of a shop facing the main road of Raja Uda, Butterworth. Jalan Raja Uda (or Raja Uda Road) is one of the main roads in Butterworth.

A giant inflatable Ubah Bird floating on the waters off the shore of IJM Promenade at Nautilus Bay. The Ubah Bird (or “bird of change”) was launched by the Penang DAP political party and will be lighted up during the night. The Ubah Bird is a Malaysian hornbill and was used as a mascot by the Pakatan Rakyat political alliance during the 13th General Elections of Malaysia. The floating exhibit was apparently inspired by the giant yellow rubber duck of Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman.
Nautilus Bay is a stretch of coast along the Jelutong Expressway.

The Ubah Bird will remain at the IJM Promenade until 31 August 2013 before it is taken to the other states of Malaysia.
