Ernest Zacharevic is a Lithuanian artist who has been transforming the streets of Penang, Malaysia with an amazing series of interactive murals. I LOVE them, and I love how people are interacting with them. His depiction of children keeps the artwork very vulnerable and welcoming to passers-by...much more than if he had depicted adults. I also love the variety of backgrounds and spaces he has chosen - they are almost as interesting visually as the artwork itself. I can't help but smile whenever I look at his work.
