Lithuanian street artist Ernest Zacharevic, who is well known for his wall murals and 3D installations in Penang, is credited with this weird 3D inatallation in Chinatown KL entitled Rage Against The Machine. I said weird because some of the painted children look like ‘Matsallehs’ (or Caucasians).
Although I have read about it previously, I was lucky to stumble upon the self-commissioned artwork by chance today. I had no idea of its exact location before this.
Another weird thing is the choice of location as it is at a private car park. Cars were parked in front of the cutout yellow school bus making photography and appreciation difficult.
The brilliant light or weather this morning made the rough texture of the brick wall stand out and it contrasted nicely with the blue pinafore uniforms worn by our schoolgirls. I would never think about vandalisng the school bus that transported me though. Am I weird?
