Street art in Pahang

Pahang’s street art conveys compelling stories of its people, its arts and folklore.

A tribute to the unsung heroes of our daily lives, some of the town’s street art features its people. These are the people who go about their daily work in a quiet and unassuming way yet make an impact with their small but significant roles.

This full-sized mural in Kuantan depicts Zainudin Rashid or Pak Din, a cobbler. Pak Din has been mending shoes along the  ve-foot walkway in Jalan Mahkota since the 80s. Friendly and courteous, Pak Din is a household name in Kuantan. He has also carved out a niche for himself as one of Kuantan’s few certi ed trainers in shoe repairing services. For the young and old, Pak Din is the right man for the job when their shoes need a new lease of life! Visitors to Kuantan can still find Pak Din occupying a spot beside the mural, mending his customers’ shoes. Just like the cobbler, paintings of the barber, postman, burger seller and Ros Bandung drink seller represent the human elements that add character to the city.

The late Dato’ Sudirman Bin Haji Arshad is a legendary singer, composer, songwriter and actor.
