Penang Street Art

“Little Children on a Bicycle” Mural, Armenian Street, George Town, Penang

Since its inception as a World Heritage Site, George Town, Penang, has developed itself as a vibrant showcase for street art. This began with Marking George Town in 2009, which brought the telling of street and social history through the use of caricatures. The project, which showcases the works of cartoonists such as Tang Mun Kian and Baba Chuah, has helped generate awareness of the rich history of the streets.
