MALAYSIA-ART-CRIME

A pair of sandels is pictured near an immitation paper cut-out (R) of a street mural originally created by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic which shows a Lego woman with a Chanel bag (L) and a Lego robber armed with a knife (R), displayed at a restaurant in Kuala Lumpur on November 21, 2013. The original street mural, which was whitewashed by authorities because it highlighted Malaysia's crime problem, has gone viral, with versions popping up across the country and earning their creator comparisons to UK graffiti artist Banksy. Drawings by other artists as well as paper cut-outs featuring the figures have appeared at sites in Johor Baru, the capital Kuala Lumpur and elsewhere, with social media sites filling with photos of the copycat renderings.
