An effort to seed awareness of the rich history of the streets, the project was a success with a Lithuanian artist, Zacharevic turning certain areas into prosperous tourist attractions that also become a distinguished spots among locals. In conjunction with Georgtown Festival in 2012, other local artists have also joined in painting some of the murals. Combining humour and historical facts, these murals describe the early settlement days in Penang. These paintings symbolize the close relationship the locals have in daily lives with these landmarks. Some of the famous murals are “Kids on Bicycle”, “Old Motorcycle” and “Kungfu Girl”. Most of the time, there are queues of people waiting to have their photographs taken with these murals. To enjoy the murals, you can just walk around the heritage trail or take a trishaw ride. These beautiful paintings are available at 24 walls in this town.
