1. Lebuh Armenian: Ernest Zacharevic’s children on a bike and more
This is Ernest Zacharevic’s one of the most famous mural painting in Penang Georgetown called Children on a bike. There are so many people lined up to take pictures!

3. Lebuh Cannon
Another Ernest Zacharevic’s beautiful painting called Child on a chair is here on Lebuh Cannon. I really loved Child on a chair. When I went to see Child on a chair, there was beautiful light. The light, the tree, the child’s facial expression… everything looked so magical as if I were in the movie or something. I hope you ㅗhave a chance to experience this as well! 🙂
