"Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur" Mural, Ah Quee Street


World / Malaysia / Penang / Street Art / Zacharevic Murals

             





Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur Mural is a whimsical mural painted on the wall at Ah Quee Street, George Town, Penang. The painting is the work of London-trained artist Ernest Zacharevic, who is commissioned by the Penang Island Municipal Council (MPPP) to provide a collection of street art in conjunction with the 2012 George Town Festival.

"Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur" depicts a small boy taking his dinosaur for a walk. The fact that the dinosaur is rendered in the form of child-like graffiti expresses the creative mind of small children and how they merge fantasy with reality. This painting works so well despite its off beat subject. It could have been "Little Boy with His Kite", and would have come across as mundane.

The wall on which Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur and Boy on a Bike murals are painted is presently undergoing restoration. I hope that with this restoration, the faded murals will also be touched up.

28 August, 2012: The Little Boy with Pet Dinosaur mural appeared in the news when it was found to be vandalised. Someone had scratched on it with what appeared to be charcoal lines. It was the second Ernest Zacharevic mural to be vandalised, the first being Little Children on a Bicycle.
