Street art in Kelantan

Kelantan’s foray into street art has earned it a reputation as one of the most Insta-worthy spots in the country. Jalan Dato’ Pati in Kota Bharu is the hotspot for street arts with three di erent themes such as Arts & Culture, Batik and Palestine.

The Arts & Culture Lane is dedicated to Kelantan’s rich heritage and traditions. Its images depict the state’s cornucopia of culinary delights, traditional pastimes, musical instruments and heritage arts such as wayang kulit (shadow puppetry) and the graceful Mak Yong dance. The late Tok Guru Nik Aziz who was a much-loved spiritual leader, is also given a special place of honour in the murals. Known for his integrity and humility, the former Menteri Besar of Kelantan occupies a special place in the people’s hearts.

The Palestine Murals were created as a show of support for the Palestinian people and their plight. A walk along the lane gives an insight into the lives of Palestinians before and after the war. While some images showcase Palestinian life in general, other images depict heart-breaking scenes of the country’s war-torn society. The grim images serve as a reminder to appreciate our peace and freedom.
