Doctor Who Street Art

I’ve always had a love and appreciate for street art and artists whether its Banksy, Shepard Fairey or Space Invader. To me, street art is made specifically for the people. Not just art snobs or critics, but the every day person. Which, in my eyes, gives it more authenticity. Now of course I have a deep love for museums and all types of art whether they are high or low brow. But street art is one of my favorites because it can be made by anybody for everybody.

You all are probably aware that Doctor Who is my favorite thing in all of time and space. So it should come to no surprise how much I adore Doctor Who street art. One big difference between me and the show is if I saw “Bad Wolf” spray painted on the side of a building I’d be excited rather than terrified.

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.
