Wall & Ceiling Art In Ipoh New Town.

We had a nice quiet weekend which was great for some sightseeing. After breakfast, we went to check out some paintings at Jalan Sultan Idris Shah (formerly Brewster Road) in Ipoh new town. We noticed that this row of shops is in the midst of renovation and being painted in attractive colours. Thanks to our friends for informing us about the paintings.

As you can see from the above picture, the weather was great for sightseeing.
These are 3 ceiling art above 3 shops' front.
I have to lift up my head and camera to snap these photos.
 Another 3 more of ceiling art above another 3 shops' front.
 This and 8 more following are drawn on the sides in between the shops.

This and 3 more following paintings are drawn on the side pillars.
Birch Memorial Clock Tower
Ipoh's iconic fountain at the Sultan Yussof roundabout.
This building is taking a long time to complete.
Gerbang Malam - is the place for the town's night market. 
 Painting found on side wall of a nearby shop.
You will not be able to miss this bright red building opposite the Gerbang Malam junction. The wall and ceiling art is along the front of this row of shops.

Suddenly, as they were drinking from these cups, they saw the fingers
of a man's hand writing on the plaster of the wall opposite the lampstand.
The king himself saw the fingers as they wrote. His face blanched with fear,
and terror gripped him that his knees knocked together
and his legs gave way beneath him.
(Daniel 5:5-6, The Living Bible-TLB)


  1. Lovely ceiling art and wall art, i wonder if the painters have aching heads and backs or not after painting the ceiling art

    1. Not easy to paint ceiling and all the time looking up and hand raised.

    1. Thank you, Mimi! There are many more in other parts of town.

  9. Some lovely artwork, a delight to see it.

    1. Yes, now we not only look sideways to enjoy these lovely artwork, we have to look upwards too so as not to miss some good ones.

  10. I love them all, but #17 is my favorite. That building is fabulous.

    1. Thank you, Sandee! Building #17 is keeping us in suspense as it is taking a long time to complete.

  11. Impressive murals! The eighth of them is my favourite- that starry sky.

  12. These are absolutely awesome! It is a rare thing to find murals on ceilings! My favorites are the tree and starry night, and the moon and shooting stars!

  13. Most we seen are wall murals or building murals. But ceiling art is impressive too.

    1. Thank you, Rose! Ceiling art has been around in Ipoh.

  14. These are beautiful and well drawn on the ceiling and pillars!

  15. I wouldn’t have noticed the ceiling art if nobody pointed them out �� New concept
