A Day with the Graffiti Artists in some big Longkang

What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon by the ginormous monsoon drain watching artists at work? The vastness of the supposedly filthy place is unimaginably cool and awesome. If only the river was a little cleaner the entire stretch might actually be The Seine of KL. Some neighborhood kids took their bicycles and watched us from across the river, a few men on bikes were chilling about, a guy was fishing from the toxic looking water (God forbid he's going to eat them after) and the artists were at work.

I have never seen such dedication and discipline as these artists expressing their heart and soul on the cold and colorless walls of the city.

Part of the old mural.



And then some...
