It was an awesome Saturday with great weather (a little too hot for liking, but who cares!), we started our wall mural hunt on bicycles! You can rent bicycles between 8 to 10RM at local bike shops. Be sure to check the condition of the bicycles and get your locks before setting off! 这幅姐弟骑单车的壁画，应该是十大最受欢迎壁画之一。想借用那单车拍照的游客还真多，争取空档拍它，成了挑战之一。
寻找功夫女孩 (by Ernest Zacharevic) ，费了我们一个钟头。我们绕着同样的街道，殊不知它竟然就在Camera Museum的“背后”。无论是店面、小巷、还是街边的小柱子，都充满了惊喜。赶上时代的脚步，minions也来槟城报到！喜爱寻（图）宝的朋友，可以参考http://travel2penang.wordpress.com/上的指示，尽情享受槟城的热情！(Man on trishaw, by Desmond Yeo).
Where It Started
When Kuala Lumpur-based art company, Sculpture at Work won the rights to the state government’s commissioned art challenge ‘Marking George Town: An Idea Competition for UNESCO World Heritage Site’ in 2009, Sculpture’s creative director Tang Mun Kian knew this was the start of the largest art assignment in the state. ‘Usually, a client would come to us with a brief saying, “we have this space, can you propose something?” But Marking George Town’s brief was more a matter of: “we have this city, what can you do with it?” We got quite excited since we haven’t done anything like this and not at this scale.’
Today, Sculpture at Work has hung all 52 commissioned steel rod caricatures. With a mammoth batch of caricatures to create, their team head to the streets and plucked their inspiration from lively Penangites going about their daily chores and their personalities…
… Penang-based Ernest’s mischievousness comes through in his interactive murals. Prior to the fame that followed his contribution in Mirrors George Town for George Town Festival 2012 (GTF 2012), he painted on a number of walls around the city. This includes one of an old wooden clog painter on the wall of Armenian Art Café in Armenian Street as well as a red heart split into two by phone booths at Love Lane.
