Each Saturday night, the grey cobble stones of Armenian Street in Penang’s George Town come alive with a heaving throng of people of all ages and a variety of backgrounds as stallholders display their wares along its length.
Here you’ll find handcrafted jewellery, baby clothes, chocolate coated bananas and everything else in between. But if you look behind the stalls, tucked into nooks and crannies along the length of the crumbling colonial street, you’ll find a number of eye catching artworks.
There are a several murals by artist Ernest Zacharevic and also, no less than 52 steel caricatures created by Sculpture At Work. Look carefully and you’ll find a few other little surprises tucked between the wooden beams and whitewashed bricks too.
