Penang Street Art: Different Strokes Street Art Exhibition


In April, Hin Bus Depot Art Centre and UK’s Graffiti Prints launched a collaborative project that featured street arts from various international artists (15 of them) at several areas in George Town, one of them being the old ruined shophouses located along Maxwell Road (Jalan Maxwell). The decaying walls and ruined structures of the once thriving area made up a nice canvas for the display of the street arts.

The project was titled Different Strokes street art exhibition and the art works can also be found at the Hin Bus Depot Art Centre.





Some of the art works found in the ruined buildings as shown above.
