Ernest Zacharevic's Street Art @ KL

I never had a chance to get close and personal with the interactive street art of the famed artist Ernest Zacharevic until his most recent work in the heart of KL.

His latest work at Wisma Allianz in Jalan Gereja is a massive 21m x 25m mural spanning over 6 storey high of the building.

The mural is especially commissioned by Allianz General Insurance Company which attempts to reach out the rural community via its new catching phrase "kampungku".

In order to create this masterpiece, Ernest had made a visit to the rural area in Sarawak to have a better understanding of life in the village.

The mural depicts a typical serene kampung scene with a weary girl sitting in a sampan that pass through a house on stilts from which a woman stands watching her while a cat takes a nap at the stairs of the house.

The painting is a symbol to remind people of home and make them think about what home means to them and what it feels like to be away from it which I believe many of us can relate to.
