I first saw this lion dance mural during Chinese New Year this year and thought how wonderful it was that Ipoh is going to have its own mural street! The murals are located on a little lane off Jalan Dato Onn Jaafar, on the back walls of a row of shoplot.
The murals have three remarkable themes of cultural arts, child’s play and traditional occupation. The weathering walls provide an unique medium for every piece of art, making every piece of mural one and only.
The spatial use for this hide and seek mural is superb! One child plays “ghost” whereas the others hide in different corners, all hush-hush and giggling away!
A frolic in the waterfalls is so vivid where the mottled walls give a natural rocky appearance and sprouting leaves mimic the lush forests of Malaysia.
The murals are located near the intersection of Hugh Low Street and Jalan Datuk Onn Jaafar. If you are coming from Hugh Low Street, you won’t be able to turn into Datuk Onn Jaafar as it’s a one way street.
You can keep going straight on Hugh Low Street.
Turn left into a small lane before passing the bridge.
