These are some street art I captured in Batam, Indonesia. Pardon me if these wall mural captures are not sharp because I photographed these while in a moving vehicle. A few days ago I shared another set of street art from Nagoya, Batam. On that day which I captured street art, we walked to Nagoya Hill shopping mall. There, we hired a taxi to visit Maha Vihara Duta Maitreya Temple which is a peaceful and beautiful temple. While we were travelling to the temple, as usual, I was looking outside enjoying street views. What I noticed was, Batam streets are full of street art.!

Then, with my love of art & crafts, I thought why don’t I capture a few murals. Although these are shaky, I hope anyone who visits Batam and Nagoya will find this post informative to catch up on some street arts. Others who love street art will sure enjoy these pictures even though these are a little blur. πŸ™‚

Batam Street art

Batam is not only famous for good food and shopping. There are many other things to do in Batam if you like to explore the island in a different style. One such attraction is its street art and wall murals. In our Batam tour in 2019, we experienced the island in a different way making it a relaxing yet memorable holiday. Street art and wall murals are among my favourite memories from Batam. But, due to my studies and changes in lifestyle with the Covid pandemic, these photos were forgotten in a folder on my computer. If you noticed, these days I update the blog regularly simply I hope I will be able to travel overseas soon.

I noticed a traditional wooden house in this mural

And, finally, I found a mural that shares a powerful message to all of us.

Below mural states ”Save Mangrove”. Yes, we should protect our mangroves as these are home to many endangered species.

  1. Amila – what a diverse group of murals/street art – so much talent. I think my favorites are the marine animals “emerging” from the wall and the mangrove since it shows above and below the surface of the water. I do like street art – it can enhance parts of buildings that would look dingy without it! Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday!

  2. How true that endangered mangrove swamps are a contributor to climate change, because of their unique ecological qualities, and as you say, because of the wildlife they support. Sadly, farmed shrimp is one of the worst offenders in their destruction.

  4. Beautiful street art. Love all the beautiful colors.

    Thank you for joining the Awww Mondays Blog Hop.

  5. That City is so colorful and bright … just brilliant. Your pictures are fine, no apology needed. We have mangroves here in Florida and know how important they are .

  6. This is my first time visiting your blog via #MMBC. My brother visited Indonesia as a singer but I have never visited. Certainly looks like a colourful place and how wonderful as I am sure such murals give joy to residents and visitors alike.

  7. I haven’t been to Batam but have heard so much about Batam. Beautiful street arts and they certainly brighten up the place. The murals from Little India are also very colourful.
