One of the reasons why this cafe’s mural is known as “iconic” is because of it’s large scale, unique black and white style art, and smacked right in the middle of Kuching’s city centre.
The bicycle and motorbike murals make for a great photo posing opportunity at the cafe, especially for tourists who want the words, “Kuching, Sarawak, Borneo” in their pictures.
Here is a picture of Artsy Daphy’s team posing with Alex, the cafe owner during 60% to completion. We used a scissor lift for one week for the top part of the mural.

While painting, we were delighted to be able to meet and chat a little with locals and tourists from around the world. While painting, we received multiple car honks as well as praises, which really kept our spirits up throughout this 2 week long painting.

We used a skylift at one point for touchup too.
