Penang has declared as a UNESCO heritage city in 2008, and became a famous tourism spot.
Since then, Penang has been capitalizing on this status and establishing a strong reputation for the arts.
The most prominent new addition to Penang's cultural scene is its street art. In fact, they are fast becoming one of Penang's most popular attractions.
The street arts reflect Penang's living history by connecting the town's heritage buildings to everyday images of its inhabitants, evoking a sense of old Penang but also mirroring life as it still exists in Penang's quiet backstreets.
Moreover, the street arts are painted on imperfect, crumbling walls. This indicates the honest and down-to-earth images, and became an integral part of the town's fabric.
