Ernest Zacharevic is an Lithuanian Artist who
vandalized painted murals for Mirrors George Town in conjunction of George Town Festival 2012.
The project consists of 8 large-scale wall paintings strategically placed within the core heritage zone of George Town. The painted figure drawings and portraits celebrate the multiculturalism and diversity of local inhabitants. (source)
pretentious bitch i am!
our first stop was Armenian Street!
but too bad there’s a long queue before us, so i snapped this cube while waiting
gleeful kiddos on bike @ Armenian Street
my partners in crime for the day, CC, CB and CB’s bff, Ciang who looks like a Japanese doll.
and then we went to Rescube, an art gallery showcasing some art pieces from several artists, including Ernest Zacharevic himself.
i am not really an artsy fartsy person, so i don’t fathom some of the pieces there. like 5 packets of kopi peng hung on a wall. hallo? what does it suppose to mean? i snapped it but the picture turned blurry so use your imaginary! and i’ll let you decipher the following pieces yourself. description are all by unimaginative yours truly.
i am watching you watching me
pretty eerie eh
steps to the heaven
crying | face in palms
human in desert
and the man behind all the murals and some of the art you have seen a while ago, Ernest Zacharevic.
he’s taken. in case you’re wondering.
chained rhino and the mat rempit junior @ Ah Quee Street
at first there’s only the mat rempit, but some jokers drew the rhino at the back, trying to scare the shit out of junior. and then Ernest Zacharevic drew the kiddo chaining the rhino. smart ass no? and yesh, the bicycle and the bike were all-time there. noone steal them. yet. or maybe they were too ancient to function. haha
folk @ Armenian Street
some random house which i thought is berry rustic.
i have a thing for handles like this. maybe i’ll install to my future home instead of an electronic bell!
