The birthplace of white coffee, Ipoh, Old Town will be surrounded with seven art murals painted by renowned Lithuanian artist, Ernest Zacharevic.
This is part of a partnership between Old Town White Coffee Malaysia and Zacherevic in celebration of the heritage and history that is shared between Ipoh, Old Town and Old Town White Coffee.
In line with the ‘Art of Old Town’ campaign, each art piece will draw inspiration from the elements from the Ipoh and Old Town and their shared origins.
Zacharevic says, “Ever since I first visited Ipoh, Old Town I’ve been touched by how cozy and intimate the town is. Its architecture, culture, food and people have continued to captivate and inspire my heart and soul. I’ve wanted to come back to Ipoh, Old Town, take my time, soak in its rich culture and heritage and perhaps leave my mark here. I was truly honored and amazingly excited when Old Town approached me to make this a reality.”
The campaign will take place till 26 June 2014.
As a teaser to this project, Zacherevic has painted a mural in Jalan Bijih Timah last April.
