The Georgetown neighborhood in Penang is an incredibly fun and vibrant place to visit. The bustling streets, scenic neighborhoods, and quaint storefronts all are very inviting to locals and visitors alike. Yet, many do not realize the vibrant arts scene that exists in Penang and its Georgetown neighborhood.
When you get a hotel in Penang near street arts, you can spend many great hours strolling the lively streets. You also can enjoy local foods and shops, and visit the many great commissioned street artworks by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic.
The Penang Municipal Council in 2012 commissioned Zacharevic to liven the streets along Georgetown. The following six examples represent some of his best works and impressively incorporate structural elements into the artworks.
