Other than street arts by Ernest Zacharevic, there are also welded iron wall caricatures across the historical Georgetown which define the history of some of the streets and landmarks that are Georgetown icons today. In this post, I would like to share with you available installed wire arts/ welded iron wall caricatures that I had visited, with their location included. Furthermore, if you would like to catch a glimpse of Ernest Zacharevis street arts/ mural paintings, please visit my previous post at ♥ Georgetown, Penang Street Art/ Mural Painting (by Ernest Zacharevic)

For your information, I will divide the wire arts into two parts: 

Part 1 are the wire arts which you can find in the street art brochure provided by VisitPenang.gov.my. There are only 24 sculptures (out of 52) (name, location and description of wire arts are provided) inside the brochure and this brochure is available in pdf format for you to download. However, I only managed to find 15 of the sculptures. I will find the remaining wire arts during my next visit to Georgetown and update them in the upcoming post.

Part 2 are the wire arts which aren't included in the brochure, the remaining 28 wire arts (52-24). I managed to find 7 of them although the production of some of the remaining wire arts are still in progress.

Here you go. Part 1.
