Street Art in George Town

We spent 5 days exploring George Town and one of our favourite things was discovering street art where you least expect it!

I love how some of the art incorporates inanimate objects into the scene. A swing here, a bike there. So many tourists pose "with" the art using these objects.

Best to go early in the morning as it can get very busy and can be hard to get a good shot without 100 tourists in the way!

It gets really hot so best to walk around in the morning or late afternoon. We walked around in the evening but a lot of the murals were not lighted so you won't be able to see them. However, there are also steel rod sculptures collection that are lighted so you will appreciate them at night.

This is in our top three things to do in Georgetown and was quite happy with the experience. Albeit challenging because we traveled with our 7-year old daughter :)

One of the great things to see while walking around Penang is the fabulous street art that seems to be everywhere, some of the works have become quite famous.

The street art is scattered through the different areas, we passed few times next to it without noticing it. Keep your eyes open! Fun to break the walk around the small S’pore, wait your turn at the wall

There are two types of art, the steel rod art seen across the town and the many interesting normal wall paintings. Both are interesting and worth studying as there is more to most that seen at first.
