Artist Spotlight: Ernest Zacharevic

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.
