Street Art in Ipoh

Ipoh has the second best collection of street art in Malaysia, after George Town on Penang Island. In 2014 the OLDTOWN coffee company sponsored a series of wall murals from Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic, who was becoming more famous at that point having successfully created a series of meaningful and high quality murals in Penang in 2012.

Ernest Zacharevic Murals

The 8 wall murals that Ernest Zacharevic created in Ipoh focus on the history of the town, its people and their traditions. These murals are on the walls of the grid of narrow streets in the George Town area of Ipoh in compact area and not far to walk between each mural, if you can find them that is. The wall murals are intended to blend in the environment and you may need a map to locate all them.

Other Murals

Ernest Zacharevic’s work in 2014 has spawned a street art movement in Ipoh and other artists have added murals in lot of places across Ipoh. The other murals have largely, but not entirely, following the same themes as the Ernest Zacharevic mural portraying scenes of local life.

The most famous of these new murals is the painting of people eating curry noodles on Lorong Panglima. The artist of this mural has placed a real three dimensional chair in front of two dimensional dining table cleverly linking the mural to the street where it was painted. There are plenty of wall murals to look at, and new ones appearing frequently, and some of them are really good.
