Penang Street Art (“Slide” by Kenji Chai and Ernest Zacharevic)

A recent mural titled Slide, which is a collaborative effort by Kenji Chai and Ernest Zacharevic. This mural can be found right at the junction of Buckingham Street, Campbell Street and Carnarvon Street (not far from the old Campbell Street market).

The Street Art that Started It All

This is the most famous work in Penang done by Ernest Zacharevic, a Lithuania-born artist commissioned to paint some of the walls of George Town, Penang. It depicts two young children riding a bicycle and is located along Armenian Street, now one of the most photographed streets (or rather wall) in George Town (as seen below).

Crowds taking picture of the famous wall mural almost every day.
