Ernest Zacharevic Penang Murals Location and GPS Coordinates

Ernest Zacharevic, the young Lithuania-born artist who needs no more introduction as he single handed created the street art craze in Malaysia. It all started in Penang when he painted the murals or street arts in George Town in George Town Festival 2012.

It was an instant hit! The street art then went social media frenzy as many visitors throng George Town to snap pictures with his work. Ernest became a celebrity overnight and his work continues in Ipoh, Johor Bahru and Singapore.


I never visited the street art until recently and I was having problems locating most of them. Thus, I list most of his murals with the address as well as the GPS coordinates as below.

I hope this will help visitors who are looking for Ernest Zacharevic Street Art in Penang. Most of the pictures are taken at night as I wanted to visit the street art after dark and some of them are lighted by spotlights installed by the state government.

 

“Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur” Mural


“Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur” Mural has gone thru a lot since its creation. I am not sure whether it is the weather or vandalism, the “Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur” Mural is gone.

Part of the little boy and the pet dinosaur is gone. You can tell it from the original picture by http://www.penang-traveltips.com/

Hope Ernest will repaint this again. This street art is located at Lebuh Ah Quee or Ah Quee Street.
