Penang Mural Trail

Murals on the streets of Georgetown is the workmanship of Ernest Zacharevic, a young Lithuania-born artist. The mural project, known as Mirrors George Town, is part of George Town Festival 2012.

The murals were never given names.  They were eventually named by avid fans. 

There are 9 murals, all painted on walls of historic building within the Georgetown’s World Heritage Site.  Though not too distantly apart, it is still very tiring walking around looking for the murals under the hot tropical sun.  Still, driving around in a car is not encouraged, as most of the roads are one-way traffic and parking lots are extremely scarce.  The best way is either riding a bicycle or motorcycle.
