The interactive paintings by Ernest Zacharevic are on the sides of buildings in Malaysia. Over the last month, Zacharevic has been painting pictures of mischievous children interacting with their surroundings such as motorcycles, awnings and bikes.

These pictures are an interesting twist on graffiti, and have become a landmark in Malaysia. One of the most popular pieces is a portrait of two life-sized children on a mountain bike, but the bike is a prop resting against the wall.

These street art pop-ups were created as part of the 30-day George Town festival in Penang, Malaysia. Ernest Zacharevic is a 25-year-old Lithuanian artist who has been referred to by journalists as the new Banksy.
