About Slinkachu


Slinkachu is a London, UK based photographer.

Slinkachu explains the work by saying, “My ‘Little People Project’ started in 2006. It involves the remodeling 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 humor. I want people to be able to empathize with the tiny people in my works.”

"It is nice to see the scale in which Slinkachu works. I enjoy both the humor and the melancholy that simultaneously exists in his photos of little people finding treasure in things dismissed by the larger world."

I love everything about these works! They are comical, well crafted, and very relatable to life events. I've got a book of Slinkachu's artwork at home. I enjoy it so much I've even taught using some of these images in a high school photography class!

unbeleivable!!!!

i love all these

wooooooooooooow

the pics are good

I actually wish they had a picture of the 'inner city snail' project, that seems much more interesting to me. At the same time though, you make this satire towards graffiti artists, lumping them in with advertisments and signs. That's what art is, and every artist wants the same thing. To be noticed.

I am a HUGE (get it? huge?) fan of miniatures, but I have NO idea what the point of these pictures are. (Sorry to be negative; They're really good, they just don't make much sense)
