„Little People“ A Tiny Streetart – by Slinkachu

Er hat schon Bücher mit seiner Streetart herausgebracht und darf in New York, London, Wien und Deutschland ausstellen. Die Rede ist vom Streeartisten Slinkachu, der mit kleinen Spielzeugfiguren die Straße als Austellungsort nutzt. Hätte ich doch damals mit meinen Lego Barbiefiguren eine ähnliche Idee gehabt…

„The ‚Little People Project‘ started in 2006. It involves the remodelling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which I then place, photograph 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.“
