I was busy all through to the end of 2016 that I was oblivious to stuff happening in Kangar. For example, I recently discovered an alley near the centre of town which had been adorned by colourful street art apparently painted by schoolchildren from all over Malaysia.
I thought I would take a couple of photos for documentation’s sake, because this must have been a really fun event for the attendees.
The title artwork as one enters the alley
This one looks pretty lively
It appears one of the artist is a student from Irfan’s school
Artists from Labuan and Perlis painted this betta
Ducks are flying out of the frame in this artwork by Kelantanese students
A Vespa by Putrajaya artists
Some funky psychedelic designs by Terengganu students
From Sabah is a painting of an aerial-naval warfare on the high seas
I would guess that the title for the Selangor students’ work is Membanting Padi
Taiping was where I was born
The topic for this piece appears to be insects
Sila used to play a lot of zero point when we were in school, I recall
The Penang artwork is of two boys bubu-fishing
Finally, the artwork by the Kuala Lumpur participants. I wish I was able to watch the murals being painted during the event
