Full size LEGO Vehicles on the streets of Italy

There is little shortage of  iconic arts in Rome. But Italian photographer ,Domenico Franco adds a modern twist to year of art history on the street of the eternal city. For this project, he had spent sometime digitally assembling life-size LEGO replicas of Italian transport vehicles , and imprinting them near strategic locations- of both cultural and historical significance – in and around the city of Rome.

integrated larger-than-life LEGO lamborghinis, helicopters, tractor trailers, and camper vans making their way through the italian capital’s cobblestone roads and parking in front of the world’s most famous architectural landmarks. ON the idea behind the project , Franco had said :

‘his aim is to transform ordinary contexts in extraordinary ones, compelling the toys to get out of the idyllic and politically correct landscapes belonging to their perfect and idealistic cities, with the result of instilling in them those vices, virtues and desires typical of human beings.’

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.
