We visited most of the street arts around Armenian Street by trishaw. We enjoyed it and it is a must before it is gone.

The environment is seems changed and the wall arts are still same as it seems. It seems that we feel nothing about this place anymore. Although it is free of charge, LOL.

While in Europe so many buildings are covered with nonsensical, usually ugly graffiti it is a surprise to see all that often high quality street art in George Town. The town seems proud of it and at the Tourist Information Centre on Beach Street a very useful map is handed out by the name 'Marking George Town'. At the center are 52 steel-rod caricatures, entertaining and informative at the same time. They are distributed all over the core zone and the buffer zone of the UNESCO World Heritage Site. As it says on the map they were done by the artists Tang Mun Kian, Baba Chuah, Reggie Lee and Lefty. Also the location of other street art, mainly paintings, is given on the map. Most famous is the work by Lithuanian born Ernest Zacharevic, now a resident of Penang. Much photographed are his 'Children on Bicycle' and 'Boy on Motorbike'. Other known paintings are 'Indian Boatsman' by Russian artist Julia Volchkova or the 'Monkey God' in the China House by Thomas Powell from the UK.

Loved wandering around this amazing place with colourful artwork adorning the buildings! Plenty of little side streets in which to loose yourself and little ships to purchase local crafts
