not always easy to find more than your typical tourist street art in penang but found a few gems of malay street art & penang graffiti during a quick wander before my friend’s wedding. amazing range here from beaututiful freestyle street art to very clearly politically motivated graffiti (stencil and freestyle) reflecting some of the current tensions in malaysia — even in the sleepy seaside island.
was in kuching for a weekend of caving. stumbled on a great restaurant down a tiny ally next to bishop’s gate, which also sported an amazing assortment of graffiti. sadly the bar didn’t have any info about who lent their paint cans to this. can still enjoy the freestyle skills though.
i recently moved to singapore where sadly i assume i’ll find far less (interesting) graffiti. that said, i’m off to a good start though with these. if you know of any place in sing for me to check out with good graffiti though, let me know! love the pixilated graffti can here!
