Street Art in Ipoh
Ipoh is a city with a rich cultural history which attracts large numbers of visitors, particularly to Ipoh’s historic Old Town area near the main train station. Since 2014, when coffee company OLDTOWN commissioned a series of wall murals by artist Ernest Zacharevic, street art has become one of Ipoh’s most popular attractions. Ernest Zacharevic had become famous by this time for the wall murals he created for the 2012 George Town Festival in Penang. Zacharevic’s work in Penang focused on local culture and blending the physical structure of the buildings into the scenes depicted in his murals. The same approach was taken in the murals he created in Ipoh which celebrate the history of Ipoh and its inhabitants in playful and creative ways. There are 8 Zacharevic murals all within a compact area inside the Old Town itself.
Following these first 8 wall murals in 2014 other artists, particularly local artists, have been adding an ever expanding range of new murals all over Ipoh. The subject matter is for the most part about local life in Ipoh, although there is also a trend for shops and restaurants to use wall murals to advertise their services rather than traditional signs which is quirky and distinctive feature of Ipoh city that adds to its appeal. Ipoh is a city where art is a part of every day life.
