Graffiti In Old Town

Graffiti is not commonly seen in Ipoh, or even in Malaysia. Probably we have impression this is kind of vandalism. But if the paintings were done nicely & without improper messages, I think it helps to present another kind of image to the city. When I saw this near the Standard Chartered Bank, I was quite surprise but impressed with the creativity of the artists.
