Slinkachu’s Bio via his website:
“My ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place and leave on the street. It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of my work plays with the notion of surprise and I aim to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. The scenes I set up, more evident through the photography, and the titles I give these scenes aim to reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed. But underneath this, there is always some humour. I want people to be able to empathise with the tiny people in my works.”
The funniest responses from his FAQ page:
“Q: Where did you get the idea for little people?
A: Many of the little people live under my bed where I force them into hard labour cleaning crumbs off my floor…
Q: Can I commission you for an unforgettable night of passion?
A: You can’t handle me, baby.”
The first 8 photos are from his new installation, they are also the only ones I titled. The others are more of his work.
