Ernest Zacharevic, the Lithuanian artist in Penang who is known for his interesting wall murals in Penang has left his mark in Ipoh with a set of 8 murals throughout the Old Town – known as ‘Art of OLDTOWN’.
An Old Uncle Drinking Coffee
A Paper Plane
Girl On A Wall In Bandar Timah – A Yellow Hummingbird
A ‘Kopi’ Break
Besides the murals by Ernest, there are also several other wall paintings around Ipoh town – the below is a good example outside a bar in Concubine Lane. The 3D nature of these, e.g. the half barrel attached to the wall, adds to the artistic effect.
