In 2015, Buenos Aires Street Art teamed up with Hin Bus Depot to arrange for Argentine street artist Martin Ron to travel to Malaysia to paint two murals in Penang.
The first mural was a giant artwork in Butterworth, Raja Uda relating to turtle conservation. The mural measures 25m x 10m.
The mural was the largest in the province of Penang.
Penang is home to the largest turtle sanctuary in Malaysia located on Pantai Kerachut (Kerachut Beach) in Penang National Park and help protect and preserve the dwindling populations of turtles in Malaysian waters.
The main character in the mural is Australian Matt Gorrick, a friend of the artist, who helped paint the mural.
Buenos Aires Street Art with Hin Bus Depot also helped organise a mural collaboration between Martin Ron and Lithuanian street artist Ernest Zacharevic in George Town, Penang.
The mural features a local girl riding on a turtle. Both Ernest and Martin like to include local people in their murals.
