Street art in Sabah

The murals in Sabah are a labour of love to display the state’s remarkable assets and heritage.

Initiated by the Sabah Women’s Advisory Council (MPWS), this mural has transformed the walls of Wisma Wanita in Jalan Tuaran. The impressive artwork was jointly created by seven art teachers. Clad in traditional finery, the depiction of a young maiden signifies Sabah’s ethnic communities and their association with tribal mythology. It also shows a lady in a face mask to indicate Covid-19 awareness as the world transitions out of the pandemic.

The brainchild of international street artist Kenji Chai, this mural takes Sabah to new heights as an art hub in Borneo. Titled ‘Colour of Borneo’ the artwork presents a cute and lovable image of a girl who ‘carries’ the heritage of Borneo in her head and heart. It adorns the wall of Toojou, a trendy hotel in Kota Kinabalu.

Another artwork by Kenji Chai, this colourful mural was created in collaboration with Hotlink. Titled ‘Only the Strong Survive’, it features birds and animals that are known for their speed. It depicts a falcon, a black marlin and the Sunda leopard.
