Ernest Zacharevic is a young Lithuania-born artist who is “making a scene” on the streets of George Town, Penang. This comes in the form of beautifully executed wall paintings, or murals, at selected streets in the inner city. The project, known as Mirrors George Town, was part of George Town Festival 2012.
Ernest Zacharevic’s wall paintings in George Town include figure drawings and portraitures that celebrate the exuberance of life in the inner city. They range from the pensive “Boy on a Bike”, the lively “Little Children on a Bicycle” to the whimsical“Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur”.
George Town is the capital of Penang Island, which has also been inscribed as a World Heritage Site.
