back to penang

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.

actual sg graffiti

rarely do you see actually graffiti in singapore, & more rarely of the bit you do see is it ever freestyle. clearly someone in river valley is a risk taker.

   
 

even parking lots are cool in oz

was in perth for the weekend. what does the parking lot across for the cool-kid hangout serving only (meet-craving inducing) grass-fed burgers with gourmet toppings? a bit of graffiti-cum-street-art. this stuff was clearly commissioned so calling it australian graffiti is pushing it but couldn’t pass up a few picts. ¬†(does the building-tall red/back/white one feel like a parking lot take on religious art to anyone else?)

more than caving

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.  

  
                   

bit of bali

not a bad graffiti / bali wall art spot & shoot from a back of a scooter. hoping to find more good stuff next trip.

 

eat your heart out brooklyn

what is an essential part of the fair/party/bbq that is the hipster & beard-filled kilo after dawn? singapore graffiti/street art.  

 

a dangerous run

someone posted this bit of stencil work on my usual singapore running path. guessing they feel the same way about running as i do. 

  

another hong kong weekend, another hk graffiti shoot
