The artist, Mulyana, is from Yogyakarta in Indonesia, and is known for his textiles installations and crocheted works.
Two very large murals
I discovered these two very large murals in China Square. When I started working in this area in 2016, these were not around. They are a recent addition that really brighten up the area.
