Dotted around the city are lots of pieces by Ernest Zacharevic, Lithuania's answer to Banksy. Most of them are interactive too, so you can sit on a bike or a swing and interact with the characters he has painted. Sometimes there are queues at his most famous pieces but they're never too long.
There are lots of other artists too. Look out for the many cats painted on walls, the unique 'Last Supper' (with Mickey Mouse, Marilyn Monroe, Darth Vader et al) and my particular favourite, the giant chicken guarding 'Chicken Alley'.
It's brilliant fun walking the streets, trying to see what you can find. I went to buy myself a bottle of water from a 7Eleven and spotted three pieces I'd never previously noticed. Another time I was walking down the road and spotted a group of three Japanese women photographing a building on the road opposite. When I looked up I saw another of Ernest Zacharevic's pieces!
My hotel provided me with a map of Georgetown with the locations of lots of the most famous pieces of art included. The map does not include all of the art - there is lots more to find, but that's half the fun.
Georgetown is a really beautiful UNESCO listed town that it's interesting to explore anyway, but add in the street art and it's a must-visit.
