If you travel on Jalan Antasari between Prapanca and Cipete Raya, and look up occasionally from your handphone, you will see a series of colourful murals depicting Jakarta’s Betawi culture and other scenes on the pylons supporting the Antasari flyover.

Using various styles, they were all painted by students from several local high schools with funding from Bank BRI, Jotun, Dulux, Belkote varnish and paints and Enjoy Jakarta tourism board.

The murals shown here represent just a few of the ones adorning the very busy area. Here’s hoping they aren’t ruined by the often-idiotic graffiti ‘artists’ that are a blight on the city.
