About Ernest


Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic has been transforming the streets of Penang, Malaysia with a brilliant series of interactive murals.

These iconic, lighthearted pieces have become enormously popular across the city, where passersby get a kick out of taking photos of themselves immersed in the scene displayed on the wall behind them. By fusing the physical world with his imagination, the Penang-based artist makes street art that is realistic yet creative, engaging the public who stop and take in the view. Ernest rethinks outdoor art by adding something that breaks away from the 2D nature of graffiti. He uses props like old bicycles and motorcycles to bring his street art to life. Local people participate in his work as well by holding poses and making faces, becoming part of the scene and adding something spontaneous and human to it.
