Street art in Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur’s murals regale visitors with stories of its humble beginnings at the con uence of two rivers, its rise to fame as a thriving trading post, its days of wealthy tin tycoons and Chinese Kapitans, its respected Malay rulers to its Colonial era. Some of the city’s eye-catching murals are situated in the vicinity of Masjid Jamek, along the River of Life, a restoration project which aims to clean and beautify the rivers in the heart of the city. The two huge murals here weave a story of the city’s trading history with images of heritage trade and businesses. Its colourful illustrations breathe life into the city’s age-old stories and create a stunning gallery to recapture the essence of the days gone by. By night, the area is illuminated with colourful lights that add a whole new dimension to the street art.

Petaling Street or Chinatown is one of the city’s most popular shopping areas. Tucked away amongst its labyrinth of alleys is Kwai Chai Hong, a heritage lane that showcases the golden era of Chinatown. The project was undertaken to transform Chinatown’s neglected back alleys through art. A combined effort of five artists, Kwai Chai Hong features a series of murals that re ect the nostalgic vibes of the 1960s. The riveting tourist attraction is made up of interactive murals (equipped with QR Codes and voice recordings), art installations and cosy cafes. Take a stroll down memory lane with depictions of a young couple in love, an Uncle playing his Er Hu (Chinese fiddle) and a Chinese calligraphy writer. Head to Jalan Alor, a foodie’s haven to see more interesting murals while you indulge in its irresistible street food.
