Mural Trails in Penang

Mural art is a form of artistic representation where a large surface such as walkways, walls or ceilings is used instead as the canvas. What distinguishes mural art is that the surface’s architecture and surroundings are usually embodied in the art itself, adding a layer of sophistication and a 3D effect to the art.

For those visiting Penang Island for the heritage tours, you must have at least heard about the wonderful mural art on display all over the heritage site. Most of the mural art is done by the artist Ernest Zacharevic and many others by various artists since 2012. The bulk of mural art is situated in the heart of the heritage site and can be seen as you make your way along the streets of George Town.
