Without a doubt, Malaysia is a country filled with colours.

From the deep blue hues in nasi kerabu to the ochre robes of the Hindu and Buddhist monks, Malaysia – the melting pot of cultures – has made colour such a significant representation of our unique identity.

To define this identity, Dulux – the leading decorative paint brand of AkzoNobel – and Yayasan Persahabatan Malaysia (PERMAI) recently teamed up to brighten up a stretch of wall along Jalan Raja Chulan with creative murals that celebrate love, respect and unity.

Embracing the values of Love, Respect and Unity, the creative murals has brightened up the walls across Jalan Raja Chulan, making it livelier and friendlier to all Malaysians.

Kuala Lumpur City Hall (DBKL), said: “Initiatives such as this give local artists a good opportunity to not only showcase their talent, but also to give back to the community. These colourful murals have captured the essence of a united Malaysia and made these streets livelier and friendlier.”

“While this is a government-sanctioned project, the artists have been given the liberty to paint these walls and express their creativity. We hope this will encourage more street artists to participate in official creative projects such as this.”

After a final round of judging by a panel that included Indra Laban, the General Manager of AkzoNobel Decorative Paints Malaysia, four murals were chosen for this project.
