10 SECRET Street Art Places in KL – To Impress Your IG Followers!

If by “street art” you mean Armenian street in Penang, you still have a lot to learn, young padawan!

Kuala Lumpur hides some seriously beautiful pieces of art in the hidden corners of small streets. You might not realize that the places you pass every day while driving your car are actually covering a huge 10×10 meters murals on the other side of the wall!

These 10 hand-picked locations guarantee awesome shots and high <3 amount on your IG:

1. JALAN GEREJA – GIRL IN A BOAT

Ernest Zacha­revic’s art here is 4 storeys tall and shows the cute little girl in a sampan. How to spot it? Look for Wisma Allianz building!

2.  TIGERBOY – #TANAH AIRKU, JALAN RAJA CHULAN

This cute painting was a part of Petronas campaign in 2015, and its reveal was the finale of the whole event. Apparently, it’s supposed to show how the young generation of Malaysians combine the love for their country with the love for… modern technology (the boy is holding a tablet/phone). How. Freaking. Adorable!

Secret street art around home from home KL; Penang isn't the only place to find street art in Malaysia. This is one of six in a collection designed for Malaysia Day, which celebrates the establishment of the country in 16th September 1963. These were shared around KL with the hashtag #tanahairku which means 'My Homeland'. #pplocalexpert #passionpassport #homefromhome #kualalumpur #kl #malaysia #malaysiatrulyasia #streetart #klstreetart #streetphotography #visitmalaysia #mymyexperience #streetportrait #kltower #malaysian #malaysianig #expatlife #expatinkl #cityscape #travelgram #instatravel #lpstreetart #lpfanphoto #lppostcards #lonelyplanet #lovetheworld #exploringtheglobe #iamatraveler #postcardsfrompd

3. IRON HEART AT CHINATOWN

Now this is what we call HIDDEN. Tucked away from the sights of the tourists in Chinatown, this iron heart is a perfect spot for any #OOTD or to click a shameless PDA pic with your bae. Where is it? Look around Pasar Karat.

4. SCHOOL KIDS IN A RIOT, CHINATOWN

This one is quite visible, you would probably pass it while looking for parking around Petaling Street. The problem? There are ALWAYS some cars parked there, blocking the view. So if you really want to see the whole thing, you’ve got to come early in the morning, when there are not too many cars around.

8. JALAN IMBI

This wall is sometimes called a “Peacock Wall” because of its colours. Monochrome outfits are recommended in order to use this backdrop to the max!

The Star Wars spirit is strong with this wall!

10. THE BOOMBOX GIRL, CHINATOWN

This badass girl looks great, and so does the whole mural!
