Penang Street Art (“Looking Up” by Jarus)

A beautiful art mural created by street artist Emmanuel Jarus. This artwork titled “Looking Up” depicts a woman (Caryn Koh) looking up from presumably her mobile phone which is being held on her palm. This mural, apparently the largest one in the country, is easily visible if one passes by 1st Avenue shopping mall along Magazine Road. It is painted on the wall of the shopping mall building in George Town.

Jarus is a Canadian mural artist who usually paints the people he meets during his travel.
