Whimsical New Murals by Ernest Zacharevic Play with Their Surroundings on the Streets of Malaysia

Artist Ernest Zacharevic (previously) has been quite busy the last few months with stops in Italy and locations around Malaysia where he just finished a month-long residency in Ipoh. He completed several large murals depicting locals and their way of life, but also painted a few of his signature pieces that humorously depict children or animals interacting with elements of buildings or other nearby objects. Above is a collection of pieces stretching back to December of 2013, but for more of his recent work in Malaysia head over to Arrested Motion.

Interactive Paintings on the Streets of Malaysia

A great new street artist is making a splash in Malaysia this month. Painter Ernest Zacharevic created four new works where his painted figures of mischievous children are seen interacting with their physical surroundings: an old bicycle, a motorcycle, or even windows on the side of a building. His most popular piece of two small children on a large bicycle has become a major destination in the city with dozens of people stopping to take creative photos. I want to thank Annie and Ross of the very fine AsiaDreaming blog for providing many of the photographs for this post. The rest you can see on Zacharevic’s Facebook. (via lustik, art and seasons)
