Interactive Street Art
What is interactive street art
I am sure you have heard of street art. But interactive street art? Interactive street art is basically street art where the public can “interact” with the art. Street art can loosely be translated as any art that is drawn or painted along street area, especially on external walls of street buildings or on the street itself, where the general public can view it This brings us to the term “public art”. I would say all street art is public art, but not all public art is street art in the sense that public art may not necessarily be along the street. Generally I think there isn’t much difference between street art and public art. They can both be used to convey the same message.
Interactive street art by Ernest Zacharevic
Recently in Penang, Malaysia, a young Lithuania-born street artist has made his presence felt and known to the local people. He is a street artist with an added touch. He created interesting artwork depicting the local scene, and encouraged people to “interact” with them, and to send the photos to his Facebook. His name is Ernest Zacharevic.
The recent street art project in the World Heritage Town of George Town, Penang was part of the program of the George Town Festival 2012. Penang is a beautiful historical island northwest of Malaysia, just below Thailand. You can read more about the island of Penang in one of my articles HERE.
Art is not meant to be descriptive in words. So I shall make this introduction short. Now you interact with the art of Ernest Zacharevic.
