Re-imagining our daily lives in a miniaturist way

Not every day we get to see ourselves from a different perspective, nor our activities in a miniaturist form. UK based  artist  Slinkachu has taken upon himself to help with that small matter. His design outfit make small people and place them in unique locations.

“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 empathize with the tiny people in my works.”

He started the ‘Little People Project’ in 2006. A miniture art practise which  remodels and paints miniature model train set characters, then sited, and photograph then leave on the street.

It is both a street art installation project and a photography project. The street-based side of the work plays with the notion of surprise and he aims to encourage city-dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings.

He shares his art on his Facebook page which has over 91k likes ad growing. Be sure to check him out.
