The Tiny, Wonderful World of Slinkachu
UK artist Slinkachu is both a photographer and a street artist who works with tiny installations. Taking miniature model-train figures, he sets them up in an urban environment, photographs them, then leaves them there for the rest of the world to enjoy. Hoping to get people to be more aware of their surroundings, Slinkachu also wants his small scenes to “reflect the loneliness and melancholy of living in a big city, almost being lost and overwhelmed.” He says, “But underneath this, there is always some humor. I want people to be able to empathize with the tiny people in my works.” Here are some of his fascinating installations.
