2. Hunt for Mu­rals in Ge­orge­town

HK Magazine - - TRAVEL -

Hop on a tr­ishaw and streak through the bustling streets of Ge­orge­town as you fer­ret out Lithua­nian artist Ernest Zachare­vic’s on the crum­bling UNESCO her­itage walls. This graf­fiti art, cre­ated as part of the Ge­orge­town Fes­ti­val of Arts and Cul­ture back in 2012 and scat­tered across the cap­i­tal, merges real-life ob­jects with graf­fiti. Check out Can­non Street, where a painted boy “stands” on an ac­tual chair; or make a turn into Ar­me­nian Street to see the artist’s best-known “Chil­dren on a Bi­cy­cle” mu­ral (above), in which two painted kids ride a real bike perched against the wall.
