George Town is the capital of Penang, a state in Malaysia. It is on the Malacca Straits and is a fusion of Malay, Indian, Chinese and European influences. Then, in 2012 a London-trained Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic, was commissioned to liven up some of the traditional inner-city districts with a range of street art. It proved a fantastic success with some of the paintings incorporating real bicycles, motorbikes etc in the artwork which have become iconic tourist spots, not least for selfies. In turn Zacharevic’s work has encouraged others to follow so it seems on every street and around every corner there is something on a wall which is designed to amuse and be enjoyed.
I found a couple of works with the tagline saying “Everyone Loves a Pizza” and it seemed to reference a local cafe/pizzeria so I guess entrepreneurship had followed art to get some clever publicity for their product. Or it might be the artist was simply a satisfied customer. Who knows.
A simple dish ... and so so good. But maybe it is not the Pizza alone but he wants to impress her saying "I am a great cook, I will make you happy with my cuisine every day for the rest of our life". It's a nice mural and a fun upload for the TOM.
