Slinkachu is a British artist who was born in 1979 in Devon, UK. He gained his popularity since he joined the street art inspired movement “DubaiWalls”. This talented artist has been “abandoning” his miniature people on the streets of cities around the world since 2006.
This artist started working with miniatures about ten years ago, and he describes his work as both sculpture, street art installation and photography. His art involves remodeling and painting of miniature model train set characters, which he then places and leaves on the street.
Slinkachu says: “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; the universal sense of being overlooked, lost and overwhelmed. But along side this there is always some humour”.
He adds: “The modern world can be a paradoxical place to live and I encourage empathy with the tiny people struggling to get by in my works”.
