  13. 13. Description of Mural Art Feed the Stray is a mural in George Town, Penang. It follows on the success of other street art that began with the steel-rod sculptures for Marking George Town and culminating with the murals by Ernest Zacharevic. The mural of a dog with its mouth open to receive meat was painted by artist Kenji Chai. According to Mr Chai, the dog is called chaigo, meaning stray in Chinese. Kenji Chai painted this dog as he was born in the year of the dog. He drew his inspiration from a dog that died on the road and also from stray dogs that nobody wanted. So he is highlighting their plight through his murals. According to Mr Chai, the piece which he call "The Dog with Meat" is originally known as "Feed the Stray". He painted it on the wall so that the general public can interact with the mural. The "Feed the Stray" mural graces a wall across from the Bruce Lee Cat mural by 101 Lost Kittens.

  17. 17. "Green tea, anyone?" (June 2012)
  18. 18. Artists Background Ernest Zalcharevic Ernest Zacharevic or better known as ZACHAS in the art world, is a 28-year-old, Lithuaninan native who studied his way through life, but discovered street art and is now rather permanently based in Georgetown, Penang, Malaysia. He started out young, scribbling with crayons on his dads newspaper, which then transformed into art school in his hometown, Vilnius, Lithuania. After he graduated, he went to art academy to study graphic arts. ZACHAS found the experience too conservative and too much of a replication of his art school time. That is why he decided to move to London. His motive to move was that he wanted to separate from his parents and experience new cultures, perspectives and meet new people.
  19. 19. Description of Mural Art He worked on a project for Butter & Beans, a small cafe owned by his close friend in a quiet, residential part of Petaling Jaya, Malaysia. Like many of his outdoor pieces, he adds a dash of whimsy by mixing painting with actual objects. A young boy holding a plant pot, pulls on a string which triggers a flow of leaves into a white cup sitting on a table. As he writes on his Facebook page, "Green tea, anyone?"
  20. 20. EPC Concept Interpretive perception Zalcharevic is an artist that draws art by using the interpretive perception technique that allows the viewers to interpret the art by themselves. He let the viewers to have a wild imagination with the art. Green tea, anyone indeed. My interpretation on the art - it takes time to brew some tea. With certain techniques to make a good cup of tea, it took time. - When a person offered you a cup of tea, it could mean that person is being polite and want to make friends. Also, it could mean that that person is appreciated the friendship between you and him/her.
  21. 21. EPC Concept Active perception - minds selects, organizers and interprets that which you sense - Example: show the green plant as green tea
