Ernest Zacharevic on the Streets of Malaysia

Emerging artist Ernest Zacharevic recently traveled to Penang, Malaysia and hit the streets with a series of new murals in the weeks before his first solo show, "Art is Rubbish is Art," which opened at the Hin Company Bus Depot in Penang on January 17. The title of the show reflects Zacharevic's over all approach to his art practice. The artist opts for run-down surfaces and dripping paint, leaving his melancholic, yet hopeful portraits of solitary children intentionally unpolished. Like his street work, the show includes many paintings on found surfaces — from window blinds to wood furniture. Contributing photographer Henrik Haven followed Zacharevic throughout his journey. Check out his photos after the jump.
