Butterworth Street Art Alley (Art Walk)

Various murals depicting the history of Butterworth and its local economy can be found on the walls of the Butterworth Art Alley or Butterworth Art Walk. This series of arts were painted by local artists.

A collaboration between Think City and Zaini Zainul to kick start the local art scene, this small alley, which is right next to Lodge 18 Hotel, was converted to an outdoor gallery of art works. The local artists who contributed to this ‘art gallery’ are Shazwan Jalil, Syamsul Addenno, Suhaimi Ali, Hadi Ramli, Nazmi Jamarudin, Amir Andha and Azmi Husin, along with a monkey sculpture created from mesh-wires by Shahidan Muhamad and Zaini Zainul.

Lodge 18 Hotel is located near the main road of Jalan Kampong Gajah in Butterworth, beside the Dewan Dato’ Haji Ahmad Badawi field and not far from the ferry and train terminals.
