Interactive Street Art in Malaysia by Ernest Zacharevic

Ernest Zacharevic is a Lithuanian street artist currently living in George Town, located in the province of Penang, Malaysia. As part of the George Town Festival that runs from June 15 to July 15, Ernest has been putting up some incredible street art all around the city.

The piece getting the most buzz online has been his artwork featuring two kids painted on a wall. He then strategically placed a real bike in front of the wall which not only gave the art a three dimensional feel where you can physically touch, but also encouraged people to interact with the artwork and use their own creativity to put their personal spin on it.

The results have been spectacular, and the street art on Armenian Street has generated over a hundred submissions to  Ernest's Facebook page. Here are some more photos of people interacting with the Zacharevic's art work in George Town, Malaysia. Take a look...
