London-based street artist Slinkachu will def put a smile on your face with The Little People Project, where the tag line on his art reads, ‘Abandoning little people on the streets since 2006.’ Spearheaded in 2006, the street art installation and photography project aims to encourage city dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings. His innovative scenes and witty titles reflect the loneliness and melancholy of big city living. We can all relate to the big city blues at times, but underneath it, a sense of humor is necessary. Let’s try to identify with the tiny people in his works, reflect and ponder that we are not alone in this ever-changing macrocosm.
Slinkachu launches a solo show titled Concrete Ocean at the Andipa Gallery in London this March, and below is the first image from it. To all of our LF Londonites, check it out! Here is Last Resort zoomed in three ways to give you an idea of the scale:
