Street art seems to have pervaded many cities and towns in Malaysia and Taiping is no exception. In fact, I enjoy tracking them down and search for new additions every time I am in the area.

Some time ago, I went to Taiping, just for a short break. 2017 is Visit Perak Year, after all! Have you done your part to support the campaign?

I managed to locate the huge artwork of a 1980s locomotive at the Taiping railway station. According to news reports, this train was named ‘Temerloh’ and has since retired and kept at the Johor Train Station.

If you want to take a photo of this massive mural, it is on the wall of Kedai Bee Poh, along Jalan Ong Saik (formerly Cross Street No. 4).

Turning into one of the nearby side roads, I came across these graffiti art. Not everyone appreciates graffiti or considers it as art but to me, every piece of work has a meaning behind it – we just need to look at it from a different perspective.

  1. I really enjoyed the street art in Malaysia. There is quite a lot in Indonesia too but it feels like the quality is lower. I might do a BLOG post on it!

  2. I too enjoy looking at street art and yes it is so great nowadays that you see it in most towns and cities! I like the graffiti of the laundry – it almost looks real!

  3. I must say that street art makes strolling more enjoyable. The laundry day is a typical scene in most rural areas and I love this art the most. It’s like having a peek at the daily activity of the people living there.
