[JB] Kluang Mural Street Art

During our 2D1N stay in Kluang, we decided to stop by and check out the super cool wall murals that is distributed along the small lanes within the street alleys. How did this all started?


Kluang Municipal Council (MPK) president initiated the Kluang Kreatif 1020 programme, an ongoing project which aims to beautify the area and add more attractions to Kluang. Artists involved in the project were mostly from Johor Bahru and Penang, with many paintings surrounding the popular attractions in the city, which includes coffee and train.




The wall murals added vibrancy to the back lanes leading us to secluded stalls and little shops that would have been missed. We were able to stop and take a closer look at the sign boards and amazed how well the murals blended in with the surroundings.


Coffee and Kopitiam scene is definitely one of the trademark that you can find here.


"Kluang" inspired logo wall murals



Along Taman Intan, you will find colourful umbrellas canopies which is a great spot for photography.



I particularly love wall murals depicting Kluang town history, lifestyle and street scenes




No angel wings but bat wings instead. Do you know the name Kluang comes from the Malay word keluang, which means a type of flying fox (also a type of fruit bat). Some believed that Kluang was named after two mountains that resemble the head and wing of a bat from a distance.


No wonder you can find images of bats on the wall murals. 

Some of your favourite cartoon and superheros characters can also be found here.



Soccer fan anyone?


Of course there are many wall murals that tickled our funny bones and let our creativity juices flow. 





We easily spent more than 1 hour taking photos along Kluang Mural Street Art and were impressed by the artworks. This is definitely a spot to include in your itinerary if you are planning to visit Kluang.
