Girl by the Sea (GPS: 5.42415, 100.33256) is a now collapsed mural by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic in George Town, Penang. It is painted on the remnant of a sea wall at North Beach, just behind the Leong Yin Kean Mansion. However, the mural is believed to have collapsed in February, 2017.

"Girl by the Sea" was painted in 2013, a year after Zacharevic received international acclaim for his initial series of murals coinciding with the 2012 George Town Festival. It depicts a pensive-looking girl looking out to the sea, while holding a balloon, now long deflated. The subject is said to be the same girl who appeared in Little Girl in Blue.

Getting there

The nearest bus stop is on Penang Road, in front of the Catholic Information Service. It is served by the Rapid Penang CAT service. From Penang Road, walk to Northam Road. Turn left, and go along Northam Road until you reach the Leong Yin Kean Mansion on your right. Cross the road and walk through the parking lot of Leong Yin Kean Mansion, and you will see the mural beside the sea.
