Miniature Art Installations

“Wet n’ Wild”

These are the latest miniature street art installations by Slinkachu.  Thumbelina instantly came to mind! Check out Slinkachu website to see more of his art and information.

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.
