[PHOTOS] This Colourful Mural Features Beautifully Painted Landmarks From Around The World
Kwai Chai Hong is a hidden alley in KL that is known for local street art. With larger than life murals depicting the 1960s, it reflects the golden era of KL Chinatown.
A new art mural has recently been unveiled in Kwai Chai Hong and it lights up the street... literally!
While we may not be able to visit it at the moment, don't worry! It will still be there once things get better. In the meantime, check out these gorgeous photos from the safety of your home ;)
Thanks to a collab between OPPO and Abdulrashade Studio, the new wall art installation among existing murals brings life and excitement. Plus, it LOOKS. SO. PRETTY :D
Behold, the OPPO Reno5 5G Friendship Wonderland street art mural!
Taking up the entire outer wall of an ice cream parlour called WheyChillin KL, this gorgeous piece features iconic landmarks from all over the world, like The Great Pyramid of Giza and the Eiffel Tower! Since we can't travel and see the world due to the pandemic, the design incorporates momentous landmarks to bring the world to us :D
Looking at this mural, it reminds us sooo much about how much fun we had when we were able to travel. Whether it's experiencing new landscapes, seasons, or even the wonders of the world, this street art encapsulates all that, and is designed to make you feel like you are abroad, perhaps in the bright city of France, or even climbing the snowy peaks of Mount Fuji ;)
FYI, this interactive graffiti art piece comes to life during the day and it changes during the night with its stunning fluorescent LED installation
See that bicycle installed at the front? When two best friends sit on it and cycle together, the power of friendship lights up the entire artwork, further illuminating the colourful illustrations. Even the sun changes into a crescent moon when the LED lights are activated. Thanks to these LED lights, the pictures taken of the mural during the night look just as beautiful as it were during the day. Such creativity cannot go unnoticed!
‘Picture Life Together’ is the theme of this mural, and it is also the inspiration behind the newly launched OPPO Reno5 Series. With various cool and creative video features such as Portrait Expert, AI Highlight Video, and Dual-View, the Reno5 allows you to take high quality pictures and videos, so you can picture life together and treasure these beautiful memories.
OPPO's Friendship Wonderland mural is also meant to capture the very essence of friendship. 2020 was a tough year for us all, as the only way we could connect with our friends and loved ones was through our screens. It is important for us to cherish the bonds we have, and to appreciate our precious moments together with love and togetherness <3
The creator behind this masterpiece is Abdulrashade, a graffiti artist hailing from a small town in Penang
With many years of experience, from graffiti design to representing clients in design agencies, the lead artist of Abdulrashade Studio paints graffiti art for a living. He uses his talents to breathe life to wall art installations with his intricately painted designs and use of vibrant colours.
Take a look at this montage of his previous works, they look amaaaazing!
Abdulrashade says he is proud of this collab with OPPO, as it resulted in the creation of the OPPO Reno5 5G Friendship Wonderland installation.
"Creating this interactive mural is an amazing feat for us, because it truly showcases my fullest potential and capabilities in creating art. Capturing the essence of youth, the creative energy, claiming back our time from the pandemic of 2020,” he said.
As we usher in a new year under the new norm, this flamboyant wall art installation in Kwai Chai Hong captures life as we know it
While the contrast of bold and vibrant colours is just *chef's kiss*, the main takeaway from the Friendship Wonderland mural is to always capture memorable moments with our friends and loved ones. That's why the OPPO Reno5 Series is equipped with an impressive Quad camera setup with 64MP, so you can document those special moments without having to worry about compromising the quality.
