Ernest Zacharevic’s Street Art

There’s not much background info about Ernest Zacharevic on the web so all I really know is that he’s a Lithuanian painter who travels the globe. Nothing out of the ordinary in that. But what makes him different from other street artists is that his work is quite often deliberately interactive to encourage passerbys to touch or even become part of the painting themselves. His recent series in Malaysia includes a congress of orang-utans (I looked that one up – it’s the official term) bundled into a 3-D wheelbarrow which you can pretend to be wheeling. Classic instagram pic. His interior drawings are also incredibly beautiful, less playful and colourful than the wall paintings but equally captivating. Let’s hope he brightens up London’s streets soon…
