Two days ago, my friend from Guangzhou wechat me one photo of him with "Little Children on a bicycle". So I thought he must be in Penang for vacation. After seeing the picture in closer look, I found out something different from the one in Penang. The wall. In the end, my friend told me it was taken in Guangzhou, which means there are a few street art done by Ernest Zacharevic replicated in China.
Shouldn't be surprised because we all know China has good copycat skill. Still, I was shocked. Here's the photo from my friend & the one I took when I was in Penang few months back : Little Children on a Bicycle.
Above pic is from my friend in Guangzhou. Below pic is mine & that's my finger in the photo. See the difference?
For "Reaching Up", there are two kids in the pic of Guangzhou version & I cropped the large pics & used collage view to compare two street art. I did not take Reaching Up mural in Penang, therefore I found the pic from penang-traveltips.com
Here's the full resolution of the pics

I'm not sure is there more replica of Ernest Zacharevic's Street Art in China. My friend only informed me these two.
