The Balloon Girl

 This mural grabbed my attention when I was ambling around the Straits Quay promenade. 

I thought the artist's style was vaguely familiar. 

Turned out, I was right. The artist is Lithuanian Ernest Zacharevic of international fame.

I find the artist's signature style of involving real props in his street art fascinating.

I've never seen that style of art before but it really works. Gets people to be interactive and thereby more appreciative of art as a whole.

I like this art very much.
My answer to your comment question with me:
Yes, the louse is very much like a crab.

We visited Penang in January of this year, so we saw some of the murals. I was a little disappointed in the shape they're in now.

Duwan @MakeLikeAnApeman said...

Love this. A lot of his work seems so playful. Love art that you can interact with. And I see that he has a piece in Atlanta, GA. I will have to look for it next time I'm back east. What a treat to stumble upon the balloon girl.
