Art in Ipoh
Ipoh has become a popular destination for tourists over the last 10 years, which has been significant in the economic revival of a city hit hard by the crash in tin prices in the 1970s. From the late 19th Century onward Ipoh grew into a thriving commercial centre on the back of tin mining. Tin mining was an industry that attracted a lot of foreign immigrants, particularly from China and India, as well as investment from the British colonial government who built some notable civic buildings such as Ipoh Railway Station and its historic town hall. In addition to the city’s fantastic colonial era architecture Chinese and Indian immigrants built some magnificent town houses, shops, mosques and temples in Ipoh, all of which are major attractions for tourists. More recently Ipoh also has developed an impressive collection of street art which has added further to the appeal of the city for visitors.
Ipoh’s street art movement began in 2104 with a local coffee company commissioning 8 wall murals from up and coming artist Ernest Zacharevic, who had achieved massive successive with the series of murals he created for the George Town Festival in 2012. Like the murals in Penang, Zacharevic’s work in Ipoh focuses on the history and culture of Ipoh, playful incorporating real life objects into the scenes he paints. Following these initial 8 murals other artists, many local, joined in and the city, particularly the Old Tow area, is now full of murals and well as art installations such as the umbrellas hanging along one section of Concubine Land and the upside down truck on Jalan Tun Sambanthan.
