Feed the Stray is a mural in George Town, Penang. It follows on the success of other street art that began with the steel-rod sculptures for Marking George Town and culminating with the murals by Ernest Zacharevic. The mural of a dog with its mouth open to receive meat was painted by artist Kenji Chai. According to Mr Chai, the dog is called chaigo, meaning stray in Chinese.
Kenji Chai painted this dog as he was born in the year of the dog. He drew his inspiration from a dog that died on the road and also from stray dogs that nobody wanted. So he is highlighting their plight through his murals. According to Mr Chai, the piece which I call "The Dog with Meat" is originally known as "Feed the Stray". He painted it on the wall so that the general public can interact with the mural. The "Feed the Stray" mural graces a wall across from the Bruce Lee Cat mural by 101 Lost Kittens.
