Penang’s Quirky Street Art for Travel Photo Thursday…
This Travel Photo Thursday I want to introduce you to some of Penang’s quirky street art, found in historic Georgetown. Welcome to our 198th week.I hope you have as much fun looking at this art, as I did taking the photos. So often when I was taking these shots I would just stand back and say WHY. Then I would let my imagination run away.

All of these shots were taken when I was wandering the streets of downtown Georgetown with camera in hand. There is definitely a photo behind every corner in Georgetown, and many of them are on the walls of the area’s oldest buildings. The best quirky street art I found was when I just let my feet guide me.
So, what exactly are these two doing? Look to the left under the umbrella and you’ll the word “polis” peaking out. Is this a suggestion that they should be called, or were they lounging hidden away under the umbrella taking a breather from the midday sun? 🙂 The man seems to really want that bucket!
Lot’s of Chinese clan houses in Georgetown, so not surprising to find dragons lurking on nearby walls. Could be that someone was looking for some good luck!
Are these flower pots really dancing, or is my imagination simply on the run?
Then we have the cats…(not on a hot tin roof!…)
And “Angry Cat”…mama chasing her babies, maybe?
Finally, the dog…he looks awfully happy. Maybe he ate the cats! 🙂
If you’ve been to Penang and have wandered the streets of Georgetown, you have no doubt seen some of this quirky street art. If you haven’t, then you are in for some fun when you do visit.
What do you think the stories are behind the art?
