Miniature Street Art by Slinkachu

Mar 3, 2011 1 comments

Slinkachu is a London-based artist who creates very small street-based installations and then photographs them: from far away and up-close. Slinkachu uses tiny human figurines from model train sets, modifies them and places them in real urban situations, capturing them sight-seeing, camping, boating, fighting and dying.


Slinkachu’s street installations are so tiny that you could easily walk right past one of them and not know it's there. "His people are often trodden underfoot," says Claire Mander of the Andipa Gallery. "But he's urging us to look more closely at our environment. The seeming glibness of the works cuts to the heart of the idea of being small, insignificant, a loser compared to more successful people."

Slinkachu says: "One of my pieces, a miniature cash machine with a figure withdrawing money, lasted three months, which I think is probably a record."

Slinkachu’s installations have turned up all over Europe in Amsterdam, Barcelona, Manchester and Stavanger in Norway.
