This Old Man (GPS: 5.41539, 100.3372) is a giant mural on the wall of a shophouse facing Armenian Street, in George Town, Penang. The painting, which appears somewhat incomplete, depicts an elderly man who appears to be preparing a drink for himself. It was painted by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic for the 2012 George Town Festival.

The do-it-yourself company, Pre-sen-te, has come up with a paint-by-numbers canvas depicting this mural. My wife painted it based on the canvas, and this is the results.

The Making of "This Old Man"

The "This Old Man" mural required the scaffolding to be erected on the wall for the artist to work. It is one of the two larger-than-life murals that Zacharevic worked on, the other being "Little Girl in Blue". Note that all names for murals are provided by this website, and the murals themselves were not named.
