Graffiti Pillars and Wall in Kota Kinabalu


This is nothing new to the citizen of Kota Kinabalu. I've noticed this place since ages too.

It is located near to Suria Sabah shopping mall.

This is the Old Welfare building during the World War 2. It was burned down by fire leaving that place with only pillars and wall. The pillars and wall are now cover with graffiti.

I was googling some information on it and turned out the pillars looked better years ago. The graffiti paintings are livelier and well made (not that I could define a good graffiti).

Well, the last time I checked, graffiti are still there. It's just quite messy. The drawings are overlapping. Obvious signs of vandalism are everywhere.

You might want to take a look on how this place look few years back.

Check out the amazing link below.

Here some pictures on how the place looks like now.

Look at that crack. It is outshining the beautiful graffiti.

Bob marley? Forgive me if i'm wrong.

If you look further...left...There's pile of rubbish. I did a good job in hiding it from your view.

Crying blood.

I like this. 

Have a good day ol.
