"The Awaiting Trishaw Pedaler" Mural






The Awaiting Trishaw Pedaler is a giant mural that graces the wall of a building on Penang Road (not Upper Penang Road as reported in the newspaper), Penang. It faces the Red Garden Food Paradise Car Park. The mural depicts an elderly trishaw paddler sitting in his vehicle, probably waiting for customers. It is a fitting tribute to the trishaw paddlers who congregate at the trishaw station across the road, in front of the St Francis Xavier Church.

The Awaiting Trishaw Pedaler mural was one of those painted by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic, as part of the Mirrors George Town project. It measures 15.2 m by 15.2 m, and is probably the largest of the murals painted by Zacharevic in George Town.
