Penang Street Art: Blue Karate Girl

DSC_0787

Penang is a stunning little city, seeped in character. Some Chinese shopfronts have been renovated, while others remain in a delicious state of disrepair.

Yet, almost all house active business and so, despite its UNESCO status, Penang is no toy-town; it’s colourful, multicultural and busy without being manic.

Two of the things that add much to the city are the fabulous works of Street Art, most of which are by Ernest Zacharevic, and the  Welded Iron Wall Caricatures.

Zacharevic’s street art is delightful, witty and joyful.

And he has inspired others to join in with works of their own. Most are not as good, perhaps. But they sure beat those all-the-same childish, cartoonish efforts of most graffiti artists elsewhere.

Penang was a special treat. Get there if you can.
