A brand new street art has emerged and is gaining huge traction on Twitter for its lively drawing covering an entire building right by Klang River. The intricate mural showcases three men in a river surrounded by luscious flora, one of them is seen trying to catch a fish. This may be a reflection of what the Klang river was set out to be before undergoing rapid urbanisation. No matter what, it’s undoubtedly a magnificent addition to the city.

It saw the cleaning and beautifying of the highly industrialised river in the heart of the city. Since the completion, it has also been named the best waterfront in the world by UK’s Independent last year.
