It’s no secret that our island has been graced with some of the best mural arts in the world. Though most of them could be found in Georgetown, we discovered a new one right at Ikano Centres in Batu Kawan, adjacent to IKEA Batu Kawan. Being the second largest outdoor painted mural in Penang, watch this graffiti come to life through your smartphone with its AR component!
IKEA Batu Kawan Has A New AR Mural Art That Comes to Life Through Your Smartphone:
A creative project by Ikano Centres and IKEA Batu Kawan to celebrate the launch of Creative Spark at Batu Kawan. This magnificent mural art was created in partnership with Can Can Public Art and is painted by the renowned artist Leonard Siaw with the assistance of three arts graduates under his mentorship.
Titled “Building Yourself,” this gorgeous piece ain’t your typical strike-a-post mural art. It is built with AR component, meaning you’ll get to fully immerse yourself in the artwork. You’ll notice a yellow signage next to the mural art. Bring out your phone, scan the QR code and spot a yellow splash sign on the floor. Stand on it and hover your phone over the mural. Here’s where the magic happens, the mural art will come to life right before your eyes!
There’s always a story behind every art. This second largest outdoor painted mural in Penang celebrates modern generation and their ambition to strive for a boundless future. The artwork sends a message that we will always have each other’s backs through journeys of self-discovery. This relates very close to Batu Kawan – a newly built township that offers endless possibilities to anyone who seeks it.
Fun fact: Ikano Centres’ Creative Spark serves as a platform to celebrate and empowers communities through art. This vibrant piece of mural art is no doubt the first step in transforming Batu Kawan into a city of arts.
