On 9th of March 2017, the Penang Chief Minister YAB Tuan Lim Guan Eng took part in announcing record-breaking feat in Penang. 5 local artists will be painting the world’s tallest mural on the famous Penang’s Komtar tower. By the end of this month, the artists will begin to paint 230 metres of mural of the outer metal facade of Komtar’s formal bubble lift shaft.
Dato’ Sri Richard Koh is hope to get the endorsement of Guinness Book of World Record for this attempt. The current tallest mural in the world is only 70 metres high. The mural on Komtar will put Penang on the world map and it is also taking part in reinvent Komtar; after The Top @Komtar launched several attractions include the indoor theme park at The Top last year.
The 5 artists chosen to undertake this project are The Sliz, Kangblabla, IMMJN, Santana and Bibicun. The artists are excited and express their eagerness to work on this project together.
The RM300,000 project is sponsored by Only World Group (OWG) and Nippon Paint. We are anticipating the completion of this project. Once it is finished, this will be a new addition in one of the attractions in Penang.
