Little People – a Tiny Street Art Project
Every human has his own unique story where one’s life seems to be the center of everything, and one’s problems seem to be the biggest on Earth. But have you ever thought how small and invisible we are among those other 6.893 billion people who live in our world? Slinkachu is here to remind us this.
You’ve probably already seen these little guys more than once as the project started back in 2006, so we thought it’s high time to look at the best moments. Just in case you didn’t know yet, Slinkachu is a talented artist based in London (a former art director) who now creates tiny scenarios in public places, then photographs and abandons them – to be discovered by no-doubt bemused passers-by.
“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,” says the artist.
Now it’s time to start scrolling down the list, and we hope they’ll make you think and smile.
